I have a 2006 DTS. I just had the tranny serviced at a transmission shop at 99K on the speedo. (The tranny is working fine, I just wanted it to stay fine.) The service writer at the shop said that I should get rid of the car as the torque converters usually blow at about 125K or so. That has me concerned as I have had the car since2006 and have tried to take good care of it and was hoping it would last another 10 years or so. What do you all think? I did some searching on the forum but found nothing regarding miles and torque converter failures. Thanks

I bought my 2006 new and ran it HARD till I traded it last year with over 150,000 on it.. Transmission was still solid as a rock..
I don't think the guy at the shop knows what he is talking about...

Thanks guys. I think I agree. I did some other searches and found no trouble with the trannies.

I searched too. I read there ready good durable transmissions. I just can't figure out what effect my loose passenger side output shaft has on ride vibration or if I have an exception to the norm and it needs to be serviced. So far since it warmed up outside everything seems to be better in my case.
