Automatic Transmission Fluid Change

Well, I just crossed 32,000 miles, so I figured I'd do a trans fluid change. I normally only do the half change (drop what's in the pan and refill). Job was uneventful. It actually took longer to take these pics and post them. Drain plug, before and after. I saw no reason to get into the whole "which fluid should I use" debate. I just went to the dealer and bought the Hyundai / Kia SPIII. The most I could have saved on 5 quarts was $12.95 total anyway, so it wasn't worth the worry. Less than $9 per year to not have to worry about them denying a claim.
