48K is probably a bit early, but I personally would get it done at an auto transmission place at approx 60K plus.
Will be cheaper than a mitsu dealer as well.
They will use a non mitsu oil, but that's not a problem because they'll know what's compatible.
People get hung up about "genuine" oils etc, but nearly all manufacturers don't actually have their "own" oil, rather they get it from a supplier and have their own branding put on..

All good points .... I do tow a 2T caravan for some holidays but not the extreme driver who's crossing rivers up to windscreen. I do notice the "flair" in 4th going to 5th when its cold but assume that is the design of the 4 speed going into 2nd range. Wondered if fresh oil would help that.

Does your PS handbook have any extra servicing requirements for towing, etc? I suspect the auto will need fluid changed in half the normal use timeframe if towing a heavy van like that, eg, the NX is 90k if towing & 180k for normal use.

Yes ....think it is similar 90k for extreme/towing/heavy use.
How hard is it to change yourself? Anyone done it ? I know there is no dipstick so assume there is no drain plug. Pan removal and new gasget?

There is usually procedures to follow to change the oil, and could be different from make to make.
Dropping the pan only empties the oil from there ( and is all an auto trans place did on my 200 series ), but if the oil is not new looking, it will need flushing, which is doable, but needs you to know the proper procedure.

Dropping the oil from the pan of an auto transmission usually leaves about half the old ATF still in the torque converter and cooler, ready to contaminate any new fluid.
The correct procedure entails pumping out the contents of the torque converter,cooler and lines, and is possibly best left to a specialist transmission service shop who have the right equipment.
