For giggles I stopped by our dealership to inquire about the trans service.got the usual run around about the lifetime fluid....yada yada.....$205 for just a drain and refill
I didn't get any runaround when I asked the service manager. He said that yes, they say it is lifetime but if anyone asks I recommend changing around 96,000km which was when they used to recommend the change. Mine was just a drain and refill....$95
does anyone have the service schedule for those fluids, transmission, transfer case, etc.? I got it once after a maintenance from the dealer but I can't find it now. I remember for sure that transmission fluid was at 96K, the other ones were close by.
the Owner's manual supplement do not include those fluids. I'll will go through all my emails to see if it's there.
BTW Richm235, I had before that shifting issues with gear jumping, it was low transmission fluid level, and unfortunately in the new models there is no way to check level.
I've watched a few video's now of guys doing fluid changes and seeing it come out black at 60k doesn't give me a warm fuzzy feeling. Not one bit.I changed my transmission fluid in my prius at 50k, very black and What a difference. I believe .in changing your fluids sooner than the OEM recommends is best. Now on my 2017 SE I will also have my fluids exchanged / replaced.
