I have only changed two transmissions in my life. One was on my 1979 Toyota pickup 2wd and the other was on my 1966 Ford Mustang. Both manual trannys. Most transmissions will last the life of the vehicle with proper care and not beating it to death. My 1989 Toyota 4X4 had the original transmission when I sold it. I did change out the clutch plate. It was also a manual tranny. Had over 250k on it. Not to say that there aren't some vehicles with known transmission problems. But that is mostly due to design flaws.

Depends on how it is taken care of with fluid and filter changes. Like reel in said, hard to know. I rebuilt two in my lifetime.
