Flushing the transmission will make it last a lot longer and will save you money in the long run...Some here will "flush" the fluid themselves by disconnecting one of the cooler lines and pouring new fluid in while old fluid gets pushed out (much more detailed instructions can be found by doing a search. I took my car to my Ford dealer who did a BG transmission flush($90 w/coupon) which by the time you account for the time, effort and materials (fluid, flushing chemicals, etc.), paying the $90 was worth it to me. If you take your car somewhere, make sure that they actually flush the transmission and not a "transmission service" which generally means just dropping the pan, changing the filter and changing only a quarter of the fluid (what's in the pan).
