Hi Scotty, two questions: Why doesn't automatic transmission fluid have to be changed as frequently as engine oil? And what are your thoughts on the new 2020 Ford Escape? Thanks.

New cars may have problems as the kinks are not worked out yet. It takes 5 years minimum to prove its reliability.

There is more breakdown for engine oil due to higher temperature and pressure compared to transmission oil. Get a 2015 or older Rav4, you will be happy with least amount of head aches.
