Q: Changing auto fluids in a timely manor

asked by on

I have a 2009 Jeep Compass with 19,500 miles----I have not been following the transmission and radiator requirements from the manufactuer for changing fluids because of the low mileage. I called a reputable transmission place for advice---he said I could wait longer to change fluids because of the low mileage---I just want another opinion if this is ok. thanks
