I was going to do this service myself...But I looked up the fluid change procedure in the service manual and if you have the tow package you have to put the car into "2WD Inspection Mode" (even if your car is 4WD) plus I couldn't get a specific answer on the type of fluid you are supposed to use. The manual says " World Standard" for the tranny and the rear differential but the dealership says that they use two different fluids. Plus, I have read too many horror stories of a tranny fluid change going bad and the tranny failing. So ultimately, I decided to have the dealership do my fluid change. It costs 300 dollars to have the tranny and the rear differential changed. I also have a 50 dollar coupon...So 250 total. And at least if something goes wrong, I can blame it on the dealership. I have the service scheduled for Wednesday (9/17/14). After that change, my car will be all ready for towing a trailer cross country for my move back to Arizona.
