Shouldn't have any problems at those miles.
At around 50,000, have the tranny flushed (not just drained, requires a flushing machine - ask to be sure the have it) and be sure they use only ATF +4.
I would also get plugs (gapped at 0.040) and wires (don't buy stock ones, they're crap) and change the oil.

Originally, 0.050, but a tech service bulletin changed it to 0.040.
