At this point you agreed to have them do it so I think said and done. Whether its in the manual or not is not going to matter much. You got some unnecessary work done and they got paid is the bottom line so to speak.

Thanks Raja. I was thinking the same thing myself. At least it's done now. I will know better the next time.

Any time I take the car in for service they want to change my oil. I always remind them of the actual recommendations in the manual. Even after 20k miles the oil is cleaner looking than the the oil after 5k miles in my Ranger.
Definitely a good idea to become familiar with the maintenance schedule so you don't end up with unneeded service in the future.

which includes a transmission flush and coolant flush.
That's technical speak that I will translate for you: wallet flush.

Was it necessary? Maybe not based on your owner's manual, but 5 years/60,000 miles is when I prefer to have such services done for peace of mind, so I feel a little $ is well worth it. Doing so will only help and minimal servicing is only intended to get you past the warranty period anyways.

I spoke with the guy in the service department about the trsnsmisstra flush. He told me that if the transmission was left until 150k they wouldn't do it as the transmission fluid is actually a detergrde and becomes acidic after time. A later fluid change would take a substantial amount of lining from the clutch plates. The invoice came to just shy of $700, although there's a few entries that I don't understand. Maybe someone on here that is farmiliar with garage invoices might be able to decipher it for me?

My wife traded it in before 60k miles, so we didn’t experience this service visit...
