Q: Do I need tranmission fluid change and coolant system flush? If so, for how much?

asked by on

I didn't get the transmission fluid changed and cooling system flushed at 60,000 miles. Kia is now suggesting a I need them both; $180 for transmission and $110 for coolant flush. Do I need both of these services and what should I expect to pay for them?

I likely need new brake pads and the dealer suggested breaks and rotors would run $350/$400.

That's $640 to $690. Necessary? Reasonable?

My car has 88000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.
