To: a fool in paradise
I will add that the only time I have ever experienced transmission failure (on a newly purchased care under 60,000 miles) was following a transmission treatment. The car was still under warranty and the engine ran in great shape until the frame was compromised in a rear-end collision at over 100,000 miles.
A buddy of mine had his Chrysler minivan's transmission die right after 60K. He had not changed the fluid. He's not sure if it would have made a difference. He skipped this issue for his next vehicle by buying a Honda.

From what I understand, automatic transmissions in front-drive Chryslers are trouble-prone, and many of the problems stem from not using the factory recommended fluid.
Our ‘98 Sebring convertible has 141,000 miles on it so far, and thankfully the transmission has not had any problems.

A common occurrence on Chrysler minivans I'm told. Partly due to the design that has smaller sized fluid porting or some such.
