Short story => Bought a used CX-5 2016 today - Chevy AutoNation so I have an iron-clad 5 day return on it. When reviewing CarFax it said it had a transmission replaced I'm concerned about

6/29/2015 - sold
9/13/2018 - Transmission computer / module checked & Transmission replaced - miles: 38,763
9/30/2019 - Offered for sale
11/20/2019 - I bought it - miles: 52k

QUESTION =>
How concerned should I be that a transmission had to be replaced after 38k miles or about 3-ish years? I've never had to do that before.
I've googled some transmission issues, and as with anything, it sounds alarming.
How likely has that problem been fixed with that repair? Am I likely to need to hassle with that again?
I'm going to try and contact the repair place and ask why it was replaced - I dont think I can contact the previous owners any way. They kept it another year - but now I'm curious why sell a car fairly early.

I'm not asking for guarantees or anything - just does anyone know if I should be really worried or not?

Thank you! Help!

Carl

You’re asking questions that don’t have a clear answer. A new trans is a good thing if the old one was bad. If you like your car, got a decent deal, and there are no other concerns, enjoy it!

Transmission issues are pretty rare on the CX-5 if that make you feel any better. And - it appears you have a new transmission replaced with new (not even rebuilt) under warranty.
I don't think you should be worried.
Enjoy your new car.
