You are correct. The fluid is supposed to be good for 100,000 miles. I doubt it but that's their story. IT is a very involved procedure to change the fluid.

Our first NB was a used 98 GL with AT with about 56K miles. It started shifting funny so I took it to a local garage. They dropped the pan and found the transmission filter laying in the bottom. It had come off for some reason allowing dirty fluid build up. Replaced the filter and fluid, which improved shifting.
