I like the 3.0r-chain driven flat six, nice pick.
If you don't have much for service history, I'd say it's a safe bet to change out the front and rear diff fluid. And no,the fluid from the front doesn't supply the rear. They are "seperate entities". It should be in the manual but I think it's 25-30k mile intervals.
As for the lag or hang that some describe, that is most often attributed to the paddle shift function which is the same for every auto 4thgen. Not much to improve on there. you'll get used to it. It's also necessary to use the paddle shift exclusively for daily driving since D function has a mind of it's own if you don't do what it wants.
after the used car service and maintenance is complete, you may as well treat yourself to a catback exhaust, It will sound better than most other 6 bangers on the road
