2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 Q&A

2010 Mercedes-Benz GLK350 Question: My car only has 30,000 miles on it and my Mercedes dealer is recommending $400

They are recommending a $400 transmission flush when I bring it in for service. Is this needed or necessary @ 30,000 miles? -
Answer 1

Comment 1
The transmission is fine. When should it be flushed? -
Comment 2
I would say do it at around 80,000 but personally I have never flushed a transmission on all the vehicles that I have owned and have never had a problem -
Comment 3
LIKEWISE!! JUST CHANGE THE FLUID ABOUT ONCE. -
Answer 2
you should flush for maintenance, not repair... -
Answer 3
CHECK your owners manual. Then do service according to it's shorter maint. intervals. If serviced (drain&fill) at regular intervals , it will never need to be flushed. Flushing is exactly that ---you 'flushing' your hard earned money into their pockets. There is NO substitution for plain old good maintenance.............THE PRECEDING MESSAGE WAS NOT SPONSORED , ENDORSED OR PAID FOR BY ANYONE BESIDES THE 'ZIPTIES AN IDIOT' COALITION, AND IS ONLY AN OPINION.
