    Neil B, I agree! My 2008 GT 5-spd has been super reliable as well. I'm not prepared to get rid of mine yet. I'm now at 492,200km, and I want to see 500,000km on the odometer. Then I'll see if it'll go another 100K, haha!

    I have 136,000 miles on my 2010 GT. No major issues- although I'm looking at replacing a leaky fuel pump very soon. I am second owner and since 2014 have:
    replaced oil cooler gasket (early on -twice!); motor and transmission mounts; F and R sway bar bushings and end links; F & R struts/shocks; F brake discs; battery (2X- Phoenix heat kills them quickly!). I am running 2013 MazdaSpeed 3 wheels (18x8?) with Hankook 215-18-45 tires. Full synthetic 5W20 oil, and I change the transmission fluid 2-3 times a year with Royal Purple Transmax.

    I know RP people need money to run their race cars, but you might be donating too much towards their cause.
    Every year or two should be fine if you are using expensive stuff like this.
    You may add up your costs over the span and it would be cheaper just to swap a new tranny in at the failure point then doing oil changes at those intervals.
    Amazon fluid price would lead me to believe $70 a change, x 3 times a year x 10 years = $2100
    I see stock, never changed, run that long and more, although myself change every year or two and 7 years later still shifts like new.
    Also going by this forum, tranny failures are not common on this car.
    Tranny failures more coming with overheating, so installing an axillary cooler is more helpful in the long run then new fluids.

    Just my $0.25

    My 5 reached 100,000 miles.

    The tires are still wearing evenly since I installed the adjustable upper rear control arms a couple years ago.

    117,000 miles on my wife's 2012 Grand Touring. No major work on it yet, just brakes, oil, filters, and belts... But I think its coming (which is why I just joined here).

    We love this car to death and will love it until its death. No other "van" drives like a car like this.
