Transmission oil/filter change

Hey guys so I contacted a few stealerships here in NY area for the service, and they quoted me between 600$-750$ without taxes. I think it’s a ridiculous price for that service. So anyone in NY area know a place that can do a tranny flush? Or do you guys recommend that I go with MB for such service. Let me know thanks

That's cheap compared to a Porsche.

The special MB computer is required to change the oil as different pumps must be turned on and off at specific temperatures to properly drain and fill without causing damage.

It is recommended that you interview the dealer to make sure they know the procedure and make sure they put their top mechanic on the job.

I DIY most of my stuff but when I reach 30K the dealer does this one. The transmission is expensive and in the rare case something goes wrong I don't want to give MB any excuse!!!

Yeah I guess you’re right. I shouldn’t be cheap with transmission related work. Thanks for the advise.

Update, done the transmission oil/filter change. I believe it was about 3 Filters that they had to change, with the oil obviously. The car does feel a bit smoother when switching gears, occasionally I used to get a small clunk from 1st gear to the 2nd or vice versa, when the tranny was cold. Now that is even more quiet. So that’s a good thing. It ended up costing me a bit over $800 by me.

Can you post the worksheet for the transmission oil/filter change ?

I am very curious to know why this is so expensive ? From what i can see, the filter is way under 100$, let say an other 100$ for the oil. It doesn't take 6hrs to do the job.. ??
