    changing the fluid does not assume liability to any problems. if the trans fluid is the correct fluid and the level is good, then how can you blame them for this??

    there may have been metal in the converter and when the fluid was changed, it moved around and may have ended up in the valve body causing a problem.
    by your post, you reccomended the service, not them. on a 2007, there may be a 8 year, 80,000 powertrain warr anty. check with a dealer and see if they can help you. if not, get some bids on the repair.
