Don't go to an Indy, find a speciality transmission shop. It will cost you around $400. Be sure that they also change the pan filter. What mileage are you at?

I'm at 81,000. I bought the car with 75,000 and decided to change it just to be safe.

Not a bad idea. This fluid must be changed every 60k and I would simply assume the original owner never bothered to change it.

I changed mine at 67k and it made a huge difference

Who have you used in the GTA? I highly recommend Toronto Automatic Transmission on Manitoba St.

Hmm, I went to transmission kingdom near Jane and highway 7. They did a good job.

I changed the tranny fluid and filter about a month ago. The tech told me that the fluid and filter were original. I don't feel any difference in the shifting but just a piece of mind that I have fresh fluid for another 60k miles.
