Huh? I bought the car brand new in 2005 and paid over $20,000 for it.

And I have my mind set on nothing; that's why I'm here asking questions to obtain feedback so I can make an informed decision.
you need more than drain and fill, you need a flush, however some people recommended that older vehicle should not get a pressurized flush.

That is called a "flush" and I read that is not recommended for older cars like mine where the transmission fluid has never been replaced.
Good point. You could do a few drain and fills as that might be safer.

Great feedback troll, thanks. Several mechanics recommend getting the fluid changed at 100k miles, which I am not even at yet. Toyota says the fluid is good for the life of the vehicle. So yes I do maintain my car, thank you very much. That's why after the recent inspection, the mechanic said it's in great condition after 15 years.
some manufacturer recommends the atf filter is good for life time but their definition of life time is the warranty period heh, so they can sell you another vehicle after yours break, they are pretty smart
