Curious to know if the 30,000 mile transmission flush is a recommended service or a required service to keep the warranty valid? From everything I am seeing it a recommended service but also people have had issues getting warranty work done for transmission issues that should be under warranty but because there was no service done @ 30,000 the warranty did not cover the issues so I am curious to know

    It is a recommended service. If it goes out of warranty then you experience a problem and can show a service manager or dealer representative that you take care of the vehicle they will be more pron to helping you with the vehicle repair. I have seen this happen more then what I even expected when working at the dealer.
