nope, that is about right. I have to assume that it is a CVT transmission. If so, its even more expensive here in Canada

yes, you were ripped.. unless it was some expensive performance tranny fluid.. tranny is usually 7$ a quart.. and a gallon for like 17


CVT transmission fluid is a special synthetic fluid, which you can't buy from your local NAPA store, or whatever jobber store you have around. It is dealer exclusive for another year

for my dodge I was told to replace the fluid in my car it will be about $325.00...I walked away.. Now I am taking a second thought.
