Default Advice Needed: 03Acura CLS transmission oil change

Hello,
While getting my oil change from a local garage, it was recommended
that I get the transmission oil changed as well at 59700 miles.
End result:


$20 oil change
$20 oil/ shop parts
$90 transmission oil filter ('from the Acura dealer")
$110 labor


I suspect over charge here. Can someone tell me if the transmission
oil/filter change is reasonable?
I called Jiffy lube and transmission flush was only $81. (w/o filter
change)
I don't know if there is a transmission oil filter.
I will find out tomorrow if the tranny oil was flushed or drained.


Thank you,


Joyce

I have a 2000 3.2TL and had the transmission fluid changed about a
year ago (12/07/04) at my Acura dealer.

I'm not sure if the transmissions are the same, but they are probably
very similar. And, there is no transmission filter in mine. I looked
in the factory service manual and asked at the dealer.

16.65 for 3 quarts ATF fluid
2.40 for a drain washer
26.40 Labor
-------------------
45.45 Total Parts & Labor

BTW: I also get my engine oil changes there, for 27.73 plus local
sales tax. That includes an Acura oil filter, 4.5 quarts of Castrol
Syntec oil, and all the misc. charges.

I'd say you were either overcharged, or there was more done than you
are aware of.

There is an external filter on the tranny warmer/cooler line. Not usually
replaced tho unless tranny was rebuilt to avoid contaminants.

I had the transmission oil replaced in my '01 TL. They charged me .4
hours of labour plus 3 quarts of oil. Total: $47.38 CAD. No filter
listed on the invoice.
