A/T lifespan

Question : WHAT is the typical lifespan of an automatic transmission ?

Is it expensive to replace or is it better to sell the car ?

Many people buy a new car once there is a transmission problem.

Answer : Automatic transmissions very rarely give problems and when they do, it is usually because of misuse or abuse.

One can easily go between 200,000 and 300,000km without having to do any work on the transmission.

Frankly, even if one has to do a stripdown, the automatic is easier to repair than a manual, although many mechanics fight shy of opening A/Ts simply because they do not have the tools, manuals and training to do the job.
