Trans died. Is this normal??

I just had my transmission pour our fluid after a 4 hour highway drive. Truck is a 1999 DRW CC with only 55k and has never done any heavy towing.

The trans never gave any warning and was shifting fine until I stopped and noticed the fluid. Repair shop tells me there is metal in the mix, the torque converter was off alignment and I need a bunch of other stuff (rebuild pack, solenoid, etc).

What I would like to know is if this is common for a low use low mileage trans to fail like this?

The tranny will puke out fluid if it has been over filled or get too hot. "Torque converter off alignment" New one on me.

I'd bet you topped off the tranny fluid before you left on this trip.
