The most important thing you can do to save money, and have a reliable vehicle is regular maintenance. This is the foundation for a reliable source of transportation.
A good comparison for transmission maintenance is engine oil changes. In both the transmission and the engine the oil breaks down and looses its lubricating properties due to heat. The hotter they are the faster the oil breaks down. In a state with hot summers like Oklahoma regular maintenance is the key to keeping your vehicle running.
We recommend servicing your transmission every 25,000-35,000 miles for the best performance and longest lasting results. While this is much more frequently than most manufacturers recommend. We believe this will keep you on the road at lower cost with fewer problems. There are two primary reasons for this.
- Manufacturer service intervals are the bare minimum not the ideal
- Manufacturer service intervals are designed for ideal conditions not the real world
When you add these two points together you can see that the recommended service intervals are not going to give you the best results, just the bare minimum.
