I've been reading different forums while making up my mind to buy this used 2010 FFH (80k miles on it). One thing I noticed is the OM did not call for eCVT fluid change, while guys at different forums say it's better to do it at certain point.
I intend to keep the car running for at least 5 more years maybe longer since the previous owner really gave it a good shape. I made a few calls to local (MD) dealers, one dealership refused to give a quote, claiming they do not flush fluid on this one, another one said they recommend every 90k miles do a complete flush (drop pan) and quoted slightly under $400, an independent hybrid shop gave a ball park price, $350 to do it completely (drop pan), and half of that for drain and refill.
It was really interesting that one Ford dealer chose not to do it (maybe it's just the guy who answered my phone call). But what do you guys think? Is it an easy drain and refill process? There is no dipstick so where do I add the new fluid any way?
P.S. I wish I can find a shop doing it right for $80 like another user reported.
