2007 Toyota Yaris Base 4 Cyl 1.5L - Preventive Maintenance
How often do I need to change the transmission fluid with this car?
I just want to double check on this. I usually don't take my car to the dealer for service, especially routine stuff like oil changes. However, I've asked the service department about my Yaris and have been told it has the universal transmission fluid and doesn't need to be changed. However, every time I take it to an EZ-Lube or a Jiffy Lube they suggest it needs to be changed,. They act as if they have never heard of universal fluid and try to tell me the manufacturer recommends it be changed every 30,000 miles. It drives me nuts because I'm certain they don't have a clue what they are talking about and are only trying to sell me the services. However, I'd like to know the following: is there still a point when you do need to change it?
