    2017 Fusion Transmission Maintence

    With 30,000 miles rapidly approaching in my 2017 Fusion 2.0, I decided to start looking around at the maintenance schedule and what would be needed in severe driving. I living in the Chicago area and in stop and go traffic all the time and sometimes can really drive aggressive so I wanted to make sure I did my part to ensure my transmission has a long life. Ford Quicklane recommended that I do a trans flush. However, on a Fusion forum everyone seems to recommend a drain and fill around 30,000 or every year in some cases. Some say flushes can be counter productive with that transmission. The most recommended process I've read is something a do it yourselfer could do pretty easily. Drain the fluid and replace amount drained with new Ford (or Amsoil) fluid. Do this 3 times to ensure all fluid has been changed. In between each time drive about 1k. Theoritcally, your fluid will be completely changed. Repeat process every 30,000 miles. Now, I know it's the internet and everyone has their way of doing things so what works for some might not work for others. Does anyone know any negative effects of doing a flush with this transmission? What are the benefits of just doing a drain and fill? It of course has no dipstick to check fill which is annoying. Any thoughts or first hand experience is appreciated.
