Automatic Transmission Fluid Change
Is anyone familiar with this? I found a letter laying around the house saying
"The work described in the Maintenance booklet that was included in your new Model Year 2006 vehicle may not reflect the most current requirements due to print timing. Please note that the automatic transmission fluid and filter must be changed ONCE at 3 years / 39,000 miles."
The car is now about 4.5 years old and has done 27,000 miles. I've been servicing it at the dealerships all along, but none has ever mentioned this or suggested a transmission fluid and filter change. Has anyone done this service on their car? Should I? I have to take it in for an oil change soon anyhow.
I got the MB Extended Limited Warranty which would cover any kind of transmission failure, but I wouldn't want them saying that it's my fault for not following the proper service procedures. But then again, I think most MB drivers rely on the car computer and dealership telling them what to do...
