  1. I need some advice on a used car. Someone is offering me a 2007 Mazda3 (automatic) for $2400 and he said that it only had its transmission fluid changed at 50k miles; it currently has 123k miles. I should add that he was adamant about not changing the transmission fluid on Japanese cars and that it was his brother (first owner) who had changed it at 50k miles before lending it to him. So I took it upon myself to do a bit of research and from what I could tell, he was false in saying you should not change transmission fluids in Japanese cars, being that they are not an exception. Regardless, from what I have seen online, an automatic transmission should have its fluid changed in intervals anywhere from 30k to even 100k miles. The car drove pretty well in a test drive, so if I were to take the car and do a transmission fluid change right away, would that be a safe fluid change interval (73k miles), such that the car's life span would not be compromised? Also, he mentioned that the wheel may need a realignment, is this just a minor issue?
