I thought I would bump in here.

As 30k is getting closer I decided to call dealer to ask for 30k service cost. Well, they call for about 500 USD. Sounds a lot for me...
Anyway, they claim transmission oil must be changed, while my manual does NOT. It says to change it at 105k miles...

So - who is right?

I was going to change it anyway myself, so questions.

Tubaryan12,
did you change oil filter too? How was the whole process? did you get the tranny hot first? Or you did it on cold?
How much did you pay for oil?
Anything else, what you think may be important...
