Default Re: "S" Series automatic transaxle fluid/filter change

why on earth wouldnt the local dealer even suggest a flush?

It seems to me they should be more than eager to get more money off of me.

(To be fair, they have a fairly poor history of service from everyone I ask--maybe I should not trust them.)

3 whole services huh. It almost seems pointless to change it just once..

The fluid itself in my car seems very good, light red.. But it is definitely nearing 25k.

My problem is the occasional hard shift from 1 to 2 (other shifts are fine).

Still having a problem reading the dipstick. I know the previous owner of this car got it serviced at Jiffy Lube, which is even worse than the dealer. So I really am concerned if the level is right.
