Do I need to change the transmission fluid? The car is a 2009 but has 28,000 miles.

My car has 28000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hello, thank you for writing in. The vehicle should be fine with the existing transmission fluid for another 45,000 miles or so. This is assuming that the transmission functions normally and that there are no signs of excess transmission wear. If your transmission is shifting roughly, is delayed, or making any noises you will want to drain the fluid and perform a full inspection. If you require any further assistance with the vehicle, contact our service department to schedule an appointment.
