That Honda crate is pretty cool. Dibs if you don't have to return the core in it/don't want it!

Yes, a trans fluid change is just as easy as an oil change. Every 60K was my thing. It's a re-manufactured one from Honda and the old one is going right back to Honda so I get my $1200 core charge back. Sorry Nasty, they want their crate back too.

More frequent maintenance is planned.

Just had mine flushed/drained at 55K. The trans guy recommended doing it every 20-25K. Since it was so dirty, I think I'm going to try the more frequent flush/drain schedule.

Oh, well...I shudder thinking about the cost if the core charge is $1200!! Good luck with the swap!
