My 15 3.8 Ultimate 60K service is coming up, I was quoted $609 from the dealer, I read that CPO warranty does not cover any routine service, does that sound like a good price, what did you pay ?, I just went through the maintenace guide and did not see anything about transmission flush at 60K service, although the csr mention that it is included and is the most expensive item, Am I missing something, or a transmission flush is not necessary, please advise, thanks.

Depends on driving conditions. I don't have the 2015 manual, but this is from my 2018 manual. Of course the dealer is looking at making a buck too.
