is this an auto transmission as well?
that would be the weak link (imo) if the fluid was not changed a couple times already.
often if people have atx issues, we find out that they haven't changed the fluid or waited until over 50k to do it. the manual doesn't specify any interval for that, so if people ignore the dealership recommendations (which are often BS), they may pay for that later. i recommend 30K intervals.
