Default Accord 2004 Automatic Transmission oil

I am using 6cyl Accord 2004 with automatic transmission. Dealer told me that i must change automatic transmission oil after 80,000KM.
People says that usually changing the automatic transmission oil destroys the gearbox etc and ends up in lots of problems. Friends says better dont touch it unless its dirty.
Please help me on that.

If it was mine i'd change it more often than honda reccomends. New fluid isn't going to hurt it. Use Honda ATF.

It's obvious that "people" and "friends" don't know jack about cars!! I agree with above: Use only Honda fluid and change it more often than is called for. Drain & fill only NO flush!

the 5spd auto used in those cars is the same one used in the Acura CL/TL cars. It is STRONGLY RECOMMENDED that you change the fluid every 30K miles

I don't even know if I'd let it go that long. But hey, 30k is better than " I've got 145k on my auto and never changed my fluid"..... Oh boy.
