dont flush!!!!!

I cant think of a single vehicle manufacturer that recommends a flush, only the shops that dropped all that $$ on the machines do.

simple pan drop, filter fluid change is best.

you cant imagine the amount of horror stories that I hear over on my site about perfectly good trannys failing right after a flush.

Agreed!!! We don't flush at our shop because it can cause internal failures. Drop the pan, replace the filter and the fluid. The gasket is reuseable, but I usually put a skin coat of sealer [I prefer Permatex Ultra Gray] on the gasket before reinstalling.

I also believe a trans service on your car isn't due until 100K. Your car should have DextronVI which is synthetic so it's not something to change every 30K like older cars.

Thought it was 50K, but could have changed with the new Dex VI

not if it wasnt serviced at a dealership, I have never used a dealer for service, just warranty work.
