Default need for fluid change

I have a 2000 accord, 60K. My dealer tells me I need to flush and re-
fill brake and transmission fluid at 100 and 50 dollars. It was done
at 30K. Is this really necessary and that expensive>?
TIA.

Check the maintenance schedule in the owner's manual. Do whatever it
says-- no more, no less.

I change those fluids every two years, it's a lot more affordable than
letting it go and having an issue down the road.

I had the transmission fluid changed (no flush) in my 2000 Accord within the
interval specified in the manual, and it still failed not long afterward. So
it goes.

At this stage OK to change but a flush has the potential to create more
problems than it solves.
