    I got one too, it really makes me wonder....

    Since there have been all of this talk about "tranny issues" with the 09 and 10 Automatics brought in the last few weeks.

    It makes me think that Toyota has now sent out the new manuals with the stringent maintenance guidelines so that if/when any of us owners DO complain about tranny issues in the future they can say, "well did you follow the transmission care guidelines?" and if we say "no" then they will say "Sorry, you're screwed"

    What do you guys think????

    What I am trying to say is that Toyota sent those books out to cover thier a$$es.

    Sure they did. But if you have engine problems and they find out that your running 50k between oil changes it would be the same. They give you these guidelines to prevent problems. When your transmission fluid looks and smells really burnt that means you should have replaced it miles ago.

    I would LOVE to be able to check my transmission fluid on a regular basis BUT. Toyota felt that it's better not to have a dipstick!!!!!:eek:
    SO, how easy is it to check?
    Yes, I can (and will) crawl under the truck and open the fill port and check it at 15,000 miles and then at regular intervals. But who else can or will do the same? :crapstorm:

    Also I have not received the notice......

    Transmission service has always been listed as 96,000 kms or 60,000 miles in the Canadian Maintenance booklet. I personally think it was a typo in the US version of the booklet and they just recently caught it. I brought this to the forums attention at least a 1/2 dozen times over the past year or so. Since the cause of death to AT is usually overheated ATF, it made no sense to me whatsoever that the cooler Canadian climate required more maintenance than the warmer US climate.

    For the proper method to check your fluid (and it does matter), follow the link to my recently written DIY.

    My questioning of the service intervals:

    I know I am about to bump a very old thread, but I don't recall receiving--in fact I know I have not received an updated maintenance schedule from Toyota about the automatic tranny maintenance cycle changing. I am glad I found this.
