Angry 2004 camry transmission problems

Help, Help, Help,
Guys I have a 2004 Camry, with transmission problems. I have 44,000 miles and have already had the fluid and filter changed once but still having this thing to slip. I was told today at the dealership, I needed a total flush for 129.00. Please help me. Correct me if I'm wrong, I know I'm a woman but does this normally happen? There should not be a reason to have this flushed at 44,000 miles, correct?

Check your warranty. I think it's 5 yr 60,000 miles on the transmission.

Transmission slip is not normal for a car with only this many miles. Low trans fluid can cause this problem.

The dealer might say a flush is normal regular maintenance. Check your owners manual to see when changing your transmission fluid is recommended (mileage/months). You might have to pay for this as changing fluid is normal to prolong the life of the tranny.

If the transmission still slips after the flush and the car is under warranty. Have the dealer fix it under warranty. Slipping is not good. It will only cause the transmission clutches to wear out faster. This would then require the trans to be pulled out and repaired.

One thing to keep in mind when doing warranty repairs. The dealer only gets reinbursed by the manufacture for the wholesale cost of the parts (the dealers cost of their parts). Plus only a portion of labor required to do the job. If the customer pays for the repairs, the dealer will charge full retail price for parts plus all labor cost required to do the job.

I am not saying the dealer will do you wrong, but you can see there is an incentive not to do warranty work.

If you're that low on transmission fluid it's either getting burned up or leaking which both should be covered.

According to Edmunds this is your standard warranty

Standard Warranty

Basic: 3 yr. / 36,000 mi. Drivetrain: 5 yr. / 60,000 mi. Rust: 5 yr. / Unlimited mi.

You should be covered.

Should be warranty. Do not let the dealer talk you into a flush as it is not listed in the owners manual for maintence!
