I personally think when you buy a new car it's a good thing to get the transmission fluid changed. I aim to do it at 35k. I probably have at least two years to think about it.

But I don't know whether the CTV Accord is drain 'n' fill or power flush. In my previous automatics I did power flushes. But CTV is a whole new ball game, and it's hard to get information.

I know some people are opposed to power flushes but I did it on my old Corolla and you could feel and hear that the ride was smoother and quieter. I went from that to my 2014 Accord which was a manual. But now I'm back in an automatic (so the wife can drive it) and it's CTV. It's actually a very peppy strong acceleration transmission. Gets to highway speed much faster than I could do with my 2014 manual. I wish tehre was a statistic out there on the CTV 4 cylinder zero to 60.

Anyhow, back on my topic: Are CTVs recommended for drain and fill only or can they take the classic power flush? I only have this done at the dealer. I don't want to have someone putting non-OEM tranny fluid in my car.

Since you stated you're only going to have it done at the dealer, and the maintenance minder will let you know when it needs to be changed.... don't worry about it. ?
