Well, maybe I'm the exception, but my tranny made 197,000 miles before it went, and that'* with hard driving and mods. It was taken care of, fluids changed, filter, etc.
Now, out of many makes and models
1) how many trannies last that long and
2) how many people actually keep their car past 100,000 miles without trading it in?
I have noticed a trend with Bonnie owners even around here that they keep their cars and drive em till they die. So you're going to hear Bonnie owners say that their trannies died because they didn't trade them off for newer models at a hunnert thou...
