The shifts say firmer, longer. Regular ATX fluid breaks down quicker and the shifting get sloppier, sooner. You should still be in the habbit of changing the fluid on regular intervals though. Stick with the recommended changing interval unless you drive the car hard on a regular basis, then consider changing the fluid more often. I believe the manual states every 30,000 miles.
