+1 its not very hard to do, trans fluid is expensive but at least if you do it yourself your saving on labour, also some mechanics use a multi purpose trans fluid, i got mine serviced once and they pumped multi purpose fluid in and the trans played up hardcore so just be carefull of this.

a trans service is usually only $120-150 unless a flush is required then it would be around $220-250... $400 is a bit over the top..

i would do it myself but want the trans cooler also that is included in the $400.i have heard that the trans fluid and coolant can mix which stuffs the box completely.having no dipstick for the gearbox would have no idea how much fluid to use
