How Many Miles on Auto Trans

How many miles are you guys/gals getting out of your auto trans? Regular maintenance done. I'm currently at 120k

Mine when I had it was at 130k running with no issues. They are pretty built proof as long as u do maintenance on them. Ps sry for deleting your other post. No need to double post things.

Oh no thanks for deleting it! After I posted I realized there was another section just for trans stuff. I've never flushed the trans just did drain and refills. Flushes tend to be hit or miss and I don't want to risk it at this point with no issues.

Yup, no sense flushing it.

I had it (the system, not the trans itself) opened up around...45k, I think? Whenever I did my first brake change - jack slipped out, and the radiator landed on a jack stand (which was much better than my head), so I had to swap it, which meant popping the trans lines off, and then topping it off later on.

Haven't needed to do anything with it since. It's a sealed system, so that's kind of by design.
