Poll for Tip Transmission Longevity crossreferenced with Tip Maintenan

Recommended Posts

I have a 2006 997S.

It has 52,000 miles.

No problems at all. It still shifts like new.

I had the fluids changed at 49,000 miles. It took the

factory mechanics twice as long to do it. They have to run

the car and change gears before they top it off.

MY03 Boxster

purchased with 54K miles sept 2007

1. 73k plus


a) at 64k = bad leak due to front pump bushing seizure on T/C hub (replaced front pump and

remanfactured T/C)

B) at 73k = leak not as bad as (a) still working on the problem. most likely replace or remanfacture

T/C and replace Seal.

3. unkown before 54K (1st owner)

One suggestion: I would also ask about driving/shifting habits, how often use M vs D mode?

my driving habits . 99% M mode

I drive in A 95% of the time, seldom am I demanding even when in M mode and then only when warm.
