    Manual gearbox or automatic transmission?

    If automatic, 5 gear or 7 gear?

    The 5 gear automatic is every 4 years / ca 40k miles.

    The early 7 gear automatic is every 3 years / ca 35k miles.

    (Some cars say 'sealed for life', or 'change once at...', but in either case you can ignore that).

    Also it is recommended to change the entire ATF i.e. including the ATF in the torque converter and heat exchanger.

    As for the poly belt / serpentine belt, it is changed on condition, i.e. there isn't a fixed change interval for it.
