Well, Day 3 after Re-Program of the Transmission and it happened. The hiccups from 35-40.

Next is the Transmission Fluid.

Here is a question for everyone, I have already done my 100,000 mile service (currently 132K) and no where in the 100,000 mile service was the transmission fluid replaced. I have found through the Service & Warranty manual on the '04 E60 that the ATF (Automatic Transmission Fluid) is to be replaced every 100,000 miles.

So there is no question that I will get the transmission fluid replaced for free or for the $50 for the Ext. Main. of the CPO, but the real question is do you think I can say that becuase they did not replace the transmission fluid @ 100,000 miles that the mechatronics has failed and have them eat the cost or most of it on replacing the mechatronics? Does that seem like a reasonable argument?

Also, should I deal with the Dealership at that point or should I escalate to regional people?
