WAIT for MId. As you know, The maintenance schedule is in the 'Maintenance Minder' in the car. Electronically. It tells you when certain maintenance needs to be done, and when. So when I downloaded the owners manual Page 284 is a chart, when symbol A,B 1,2,3,4,5. But it does mention change automatic trans fluid @60,000 miles IF YOU DRIVE IT IN EXTREME CONDITIONS. otherwise it can go longer. Much longer. And replacing Brake and Power steering fluid at 45K is unheard of. Unless contaminated. I highly suggest you study Page 284 in your owners manual, if you don't have it download in the next window

It may not go by mileage once the fluid reaches a certian age, per dealership protocal. If it where me I would do it and look at it as preventative maintenance.

Point taken Michael. I just sometimes think the dealers think everybody that owns an Acura has money to burn. And 7 years is not old for those fluids. The don't wear out. But if contaminated, different story.

Thanks a lot Fordnut and Michael. I went through pg 284 it was helpful. In a seperate Maintaincenc booklet it says that change brake fuid every three years, although the MID has not displayed number associated with fluid change as yet.
