My car has 59000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

Hi there. If your transmission has a floor mounted shifter then there would be no change at all. If the transmission in your vehicle has a column shifter the the linkage would be different. Otherwise, the transmission are the same inside and built the same. If you need further assistance with determining the difference between a LHD and a RHD transmission, then seek out a professional, such as one from Your Mechanic, to help you.
