You do realize that 415k KILOMETERS is equal to 257,000 US Miles?? Thus his car had tranny failure right around when most seem to....some make it longer though. Mine is still going strong at 245,000 miles, and my dad's is at 273,000....but I think his was rebuilt at some point prior to him having the car (it had 248,000 on it when we bought it.
