What Justin said it's all how you treat it. If properly maintained and not beat all to hell they will last quite a while. What gear set do you have btw?

The biggest killer of the tranny is heat, if you try to pull a heavy load and dont use drive instead of overdrive it will overheat it quick and you will lose the overdrive. once gone its rebuild time to replace the overdrive drum. I have heard an add on cooler can help but i just went back to a 5 sp standard for no more worries.
