    Recommended Flushing??

    I took my car in yesterday for my 45000 mile warranty work. They asked if i wanted to do the recommended injector flushing and i think it was gear box as well. Not really knowing i said sure (its an extra $90) Just wondering what people know about this and if its really worth it?

    That's about time that the gearbox tend to get a little dirty and it wouldnt be a bad idea to replace the fluid in the front and rear.
