    Just had the dealer drain and fill my transmission fluid (I do everything else DIY) but didnt wanna risk it with this. The service tech let me watch and check the fluid, at 59k still very red and no burnt smell. So those of you that are waiting to the new 60k recommendation, think your safe, based on what I saw think the 30k is a waste of money, but whatever helps you sleep at night. Just wanted to give you an update. Oh and dealer cost was $170 for drain and fill.

    Dealer said they dont flush anymore with trannys. There's also a thread on here with a former Amco employee who said they wouldnt flush as well.
