Aloha everyone!

My 2007 will be 10 years old in April. The odometer just rolled over to 60K. I have kept up with oil changes and all other regular maintenance issues. Body is still in fantastic shape and the paint still shines.
Interior looks great except for the sharpie ink spot on the drivers seat. (opps) It's going in for it's 3rd set of tires next week because I don't trust the current Bridgestone's to get me through a Winter storm.
My only real concern is the tranny. The extended warranty on it expires when it turns 10. The dealer says he has only seem a few come in for replacement.

Should I trust it for a few more years or trade it in?

I agree with the above post.  Do you want a new car?   Considering it only has 60k, I would drive it a bit longer.   That is assuming everything else is working.

hehe.........
I was reading the thread-- expecting to see 260,000 or something...  then saw 60,000 ---------YOUNG engine.

My 2010 is now at 123,000  and I'm planning on at least 200,000.

I do transmission drain and refills to keep the fluid clean (and filter).

I simply buy the trans fluid when its on sale. Valvoline full synthetic Dexron VI (at NAPA)

these have been my drain/refills  (I dont do flushes).

50,464
50,883
79,147
79,657
80,441
100,000
110,000


Engine is young.
Vehicle is in great condition inside and out.

If the trans goes out- its $3500---- or so.

$4000 is less than $35,000

I would keep driving it.

A tranny might be more of a concern on M Street than it is in the Acadia.
