    Always change the transmission oil on time recommended by the manufacturer else it will eventually eat up your transmission. Never listen to mechanics who advise not to change it. Same applies for gear oil in manual cars.

    I'll tell you something - when the W210 MB came out fresh, MB said the transmission is filled for life - hmm really - infact they did not even provide a dipstick - and to check the fluid you need to buy an MB tool which is just a fancy dipstick to check the fluid level.

    Fast forward to 15 years into the cars life. MB recommends changing of the transmission fluid at every 160,000 kms now in the same old cars as they failed. Filled for life should be questioned by the manufacturer to what they have determined LIFE is. This was brought into light by most European taxi drivers - as they have clocked more than 800,000 kms on their cars and their first transmissions failed at 200,000 and never failed again because they changed fluid and filter afterwards..

    In a Honda its a complete stupid goofball design, because to replace the transmission filter you need to completely disassemble the transmission.

    Changing transmission fluid is easy - and IMO every person who holds a Drivers license should be able to do it.
