Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

How long a transmission lasts is directly proportionate to the care it receives and how the vehicle is used. If it is used for heavy towing or hauling and receives little or no maintenance then the transmission will not least as long as a vehicle used more lightly and receives maintenance. If you're unaware of the history of the vehicle then the only thing you'd really be able to do is test drive it and see how the transmission acts, and you could take a look at the fluid to see what condition it is in. It isn't uncommon for an automatic transmission to last in excess of 200,000 miles if periodic maintenance is performed.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
