Well I am glad to hear that Kia did a good job of making you one of their super fluid change sales people.
Now about Quote:and not to mention it is common sense.it is kind of like oil turning to sludge same thing:
Just why is it common sense? I have looked inside many late model transmissions and rear ends also transfer cases with some over 275K miles and 15 to 20 years without fluid changing. I never found any traces of the fluids turning to sludge.
If it makes people feel good to change their fluids then by all means I say go for it.
Myself I had my 1982 Broncos with a Ford D2 Auto transmission drained at 20 years and the pan was clean with no sign of anything and the fluid the original Dextron red clean and no burnt smell. The Tech. doing the work said it really did not need changing. I just thought lets take a look what the hell.
Bye Bye Money..
