No, basically money grabs. No to the fuel system service, just use top tier fuel and occasionally add some techron fuel cleaner. For the trans fluid, I would do a drain and fill, no flush.

Forget the fuel system service, if your using top tier fuel it is not needed, if your not using top tier fuel then a bottle of Techron every other tank will do nicely. As far as transmission fluid flushing it is never a good idea to flush the transmission as it could loosen up varnish and really mess up a good transmission, a standard fluid and filter change will suffice.
