honda states that if you live in mountainous areas or tow regularly, the first diff service should be done at 7500 miles and every 15000 miles thereafter. it is NOT a flush, it is drain and fill. they say the fluid can stress or shear. with any new vehicle still in warranty, it is best to do just as they say. if there was an issue, at least they can't decline a warranty repair because of lack of maintenance.
