Well, being a Mitsubishi, I would not expect it to last 100,000. You know how Chryslers had horrible transmissions? Those were all made by Mitsubishi/of a Mitsubishi design.

My '03 Lancer has over 120,000 miles on it. Zero problems so far.

well the reason why chryslers transmissions are horrible is because they buy them from mitsubishi they dont make there own so what do they do? they buy them with the cheapest and lowest parts possible to save on cost. So that doesnt mean that mitsubishi cars have bad transmission because they make there own.

Honestly it all depends on how well you take care of them. Change the fluid and filter regularly, don't abuse it, keep the coolant regularly changed and filled too, and you will get 200-300k easy.

well i have a 02 lancer and i have put 2 transmissions in it. you can change the filter unless you wana pay a tran shop $1500 more or less to drop it out and pull the trans out and pull the case apart and put the new one in. its a real painin the a$$ if you dont know what you doing. the trans that came with tha car exploded on my girl friend on her way to work that planetary gear split on it. and the trans that i just pulled out the passenger side cv bearing went bad it was cheeper to get a nem trans then replacing the bearing. so all and all if it goes again i am going to put a standard trans in it. there just junk lol
