42re transmission

My Auto in my 2003 wg has just been rebuilt at 96000ks i have read all sorts of negative comments on the 42re behind the 4ltre engine i am just wondering if i should move to another model or are their any measures i can take to preserve the box eg oil cooler, oil , etc or just some positive stories about the later models with the 42re would be good its cost me $3000 australian to repair so i am a little depressed any comments or suggestions would be appreciated regards

Re: 42re transmission

I think you'll be fine. We had our '99s rebuilt at 180K and it's been fine ever since.
