  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?
  2. I drive a lexus rx 300 1999 SUV with 160000 miles..when it was purchased there was always a transmission sensor problem but it has driven well until recently. Last December it started to buck while in drive and this week it happened again after driving for 20 minutes. It felt so bad on the car I had it towed to the mechanic. The tow guy put the car in neutral and I picked the car back up the following day. I was told the reverse was gone but I would be able to use other gears. The mechanic also drained fuilds out and refilled. The engine runs good and I checked the transmission fluid level before pulling off. It indicated a pink color and on the cool line. When I pulled off the tires did seem to rub a little. I reached 3 blocks with no bucking before the car just stop moving. None of the gears responded. I remember hearing crackle and loose sounds on and off while driving the 3 blocks. I called for a tow truck and when he tried putting the car in neutral it did not respond. He tried going forward and the car drove backwards as well. He said my transmission locked and it will not be possible to tow. With effort we were able to tow home. Is this common?????? Did my transmission just randomly fail?? What are the indication of a failing transmission ?
