In today’s world it is not uncommon for vehicles to be driven by the original owner for well over 100,000 miles. Even when vehicles change hands they can last for a very long time if they are maintained correctly. Most owners understand the importance of changing engine oil, replacing brake pads, and installing new tires, but sometimes other items are overlooked. Transmission fluid, for one, is very important. The driver may not notice a problem but as the vehicle travels down the road, transmission fluid is breaking down. Changing this essential fluid will help the vehicle last longer and be more reliable. If you want your vehicle to live a long, trouble-free life you need to consider all fluids and wearable parts and keep them diligently maintained. 500,000 miles is not unrealistic!
