re - Personally, I find getting the level where it needs to be one of the more pia type maintenance activities on these cars.
I couldn't agree more.
It is probably one of the easiest to accidently overfill, which is just as bad.
However, it is one of the few if not only tranny that provides a drain plug on the torque converter.
While I had it out earlier to warm things up (never left "S"), the tranny shifted fine. Just a hair bit of foaming from it being about 300 ml low.
