I have 3 breaker bars. I always us the longest one, unless space is an issue.
I was surprised to see only 1 1/2 quarts in the drain pan. Now the Engine and O/D lights are off.

Just came back from my local service/dealer where I was shocked by "new warranty" policies.
Except new TB no-replacement procedure, here is another one.

Transmission flush is mandatory at 36k miles (if I want to keep warranty). And they claim that whatever KIA says is not right...

edbemeica, I would be getting a full fluid flush done as soon as possible. It is way overdue. If it is starting to slip, you may have done damage already, but getting the system flushed may help. It's worth a try You can't do any harm by changing the fluid now, but if the damage is done, it may not do any good.

Thanks all. I finally got around to doing the new 30K miles ATF service. The KIA place near my work sells the ATF SP-III for $6.30qt. Its cheaper than most of the aftermarket stuff.

this is a Rondo Forum and your responding to a thread that is nearly three years old, also if you post in the correct forum it would be more helpful to you and to members who own Sorento's in responding to it
2003-2010 Sorento Forum - Kia Forum

Also most of the information should be in your owners manual.

I believe all the dealers latch onto the severe service guidelines as this is a very high profit procedure. With the right equipment they can change the fluid in a few minutes and bill for hours. You cannot talk to them about this, though, as all you will get is the threat of voiding your warranty if you don't do what they say.

By the way the dealer I used charged $195 and changed all the oil using a machine that even replaced the oil in the torque converter. The rest of the maintenance was pretty easy to do myself and/or with a local shop.
I just got back from a dealer appointment and good hosed for $300 plus for a oil change, air filter, pollen filter, installing winter tires on rims and storage of my all-seasons.

Then I was told my transmission needed a flush and new liquid put in its place. $250 plus.

Then they said my 2 front brakes needed new pads and that my disc's need to be changed as well. $515 plus.

I drive a 2012 Sportage with 54,000 ams. Is it me or does this sound overly expensive. I can see me needing new break pads, but discs? my breaks don't make any noise what so ever. How do we know we aren't getting taken advantage of.

Thoughts?

Sorry I'm just now seeing this, but $515 for new discs and pad is obscene! I ordered bosch pads off of amazon for $38 for the set and 2 new rotors for $76. Shipping was free due to amazon prime and I installed them in my garage in under an hour. So far, the pads don't spit out much dust and the rotors are great. Check with amazon for parts, pads and rotors are very, very easy to replace on the rondo.

While the price seems a bit steep to me for your brake job, it is entirely possible that at 54,000 you would need either new or faced rotors even if you don't feel or hear anything obvious. If you are concerned about being taken advantage of, I would suggest going to a brake shop for a second opinion and usually free inspection and quote.
