Default Oil Changes / Transmission Fluid

I really only plan on doing some daily highway driving about 50 miles a day in southern California. From my research here I'm starting to shy away from purchasing the GTR due to the transmission problems. I realize I need Mobil 1 (0-40) for the oil and the OEM or WillAll for the transmission.

How much can I expect to pay for oil changes and transmission fluid changes?

How often will I need to change them out?

if you know where to look the tranny oil can be had for about $60 a quart. X 8 ( manaul says 10) it MSRPS for $90. diff fluid can be had for around $45 X 3 MSRP for around $70 mobil 1 0W 40 can be found anywhere including your local walmart for about $6 a quart X 6



if your car stays under 230 F for the engine oil and tranny oil ...... engine oil can go 6K ...... tranny and diff 18K ( this might change to 9K / 36K )

over 230F its every 1800 miles (this might change to 3K)

over 260F for either its immediately


like i said.....in japan they just doubled their intervals for fluid changes so its possible we will see this announced in the US shortly.

For the transmission I'm looking at anywhere from 18,000 to 36,000 miles provided I keep it under 230F?

disregard the 36K until its confrimed here in the US. this was just announced for japan last week as a means to lower to cost of ownership for the car... even if the change is for our market too .. personally i would still change it way before that.

if your not tracking it but maybe spirited driving here and there.. i would suggest 12K miles to a maximum of 18K... atleast for the initial tranmisison fluid change as alot of people have reported alot of metal shavings
