in 3 years ive only seen one trans go out on a tundra, and that was the owners SC tundra that he beat the piss out of. any other issues have been from customers pulling the trans drain plug when trying to change the oil.
I have personally done dozens of trans flushes on tundras of different mileages and never had an issue with any of them
I changed mine at 50k and again the other week at 100k. Looked like new both times, with very little [email protected] on the drain plug magnet.
Unless you are flushing the fluid yourself, you wont know it has been done, or you simply paid for it to be done...

Dealer was around $50Is it a real filter, or just a wire mesh? Going to call around, but if it's not a real filter then I'm not sure why it needs to be changed.
I did see it's about $25 on Amazon, though. Cheap enough to replace, assuming the dealer is close to that.
