Often to Change?

How often should one change to the ATF in a M5OD-R1HD? This is regarding my 2009 Sport.

Considering you've got a 2009, what's the Owner's Manual recommended interval?

Ford's service interval is just out of warranty(100K). Seems a little long for my tastes.

I'd say if you're not comfortable with it, change it out whenever you think it's needed.

Not going to hurt anything by changing it out early...comes down to personal preference in this case.

The Owner's Manual recommended intervals are the minimum required to maintain the warranty, so if you want to go above and beyond, what't the harm?

For comparison, the Raptor's Owner's Manual says change the oil every 12,500km.... I'm not severe service by any means, but I'm happier with oil changes every 7500km.
