True story I have to say. While studying at college I had to sell my car. Thankfully I spend my money on essay editing service at https://edubirdie.com/essay-editing-service and that helped me to pass my exams. Now I have Hyundai Sonata 2013 and I'm pretty happy with this car.85 Honda SEI said to change the AT fluid every 30K, 3-4 quarts as I recall, could only use Honda fluid or you will have a ton of leaks. Transaxle like the Elantra but the fill plug had a dipstick mounted to it. Least you could see the fluid so it was clean. Only followed it for the first 100K miles, seemed to be a waste of time, was running perfect at 236K, but the body was a pile of rust.
Daughter-in-law's dad gave her his 2000 Ford Taurus for a wedding present, wouldn't let her get married until she finished college, both my sons and her college car was a disaster, piles of rust and many mechanical problems. But told my son to check the AT fluid, had a front seal leak every 500 miles, dealer wanted $2,000.00 to replace it. Gave it to me, dumped in a bottle of Lucas transmission stop leak. They actually put 265K miles on that car never lost a drop of fluid, never changed it. But like any other road salt car, was a pile of rust.
Had a 72 Ford motorhome, had to change the fluid every 20K because it was turning black, same transmission as used in cars, but a huge extra load.
Experts say the reason why they got rid of the dipstick is users won't pour windshield washer fluid in it, more like a bean counter thing. But if you like to pour in washer fluid, try the oil fill cap, much larger than trying to pour fluid in that thin AT dipstick tube. Change of color is the key reason to change it, just like motor oil, both turn black.
