My 2005 V6 just turned the 36,000 mile mark. Is there anything that I need to have checked out at this time. I have taken her in for her oil changes and inspections and just want to know from your past experiences thing to watch for at this stage of the game.

The tires are still doing OK but I am looking at replacing them before wintertime. Looking at getting some all-weather tires for the radical season changes my area is prone to.

Thanks Stl for the info. The last inspection I had my Ford dealership do was in January and they said that all my fluid levels were good and the only thing that needed to be changed was the oil filter which had been done.

I still am not sure when the A/T fluid needs to be changed. Looked at the service intervals for the 5R55S and I swear the first change is 150K.
