Hyundai/Kia 6 speed transmission is sealed for life right? If we drive the car normally, it should be good for life..but if we often drive aggressively, transmission service is recommended to be done...

crissfix in youtube have explained even with the seal for life, it is recommended to change the GB oil.

I replace the ATF around 60-70k for my hyundai 6AT GB. The service interval is only partial drain, not full drain. The fluid is not that expensive. Consider the idling, slow traffic and hot weather in our country. I will not take the chance.

How long you had your car?

But anyway, based on my own experience, around that mileage, already can feel a bit of "slack" on the transmission shifting.
