What are your thoughts on Flushing Fluids? How often? What is the cost to do so? TIA

Other than oil and filter being changed 1-2x per year, my personal plan is fluid flush ALL every 5 years for coolant, transmission fluid, brake fluid, and power steering fluid (less likely with electric steering nowadays).

When I bought my '14 last year I had the transmission done by a dealer; $200 for total drain and refill of nearly 8 quarts. I buy my preferred synthetic at Walmart and filters at KIA (some Walmarts now stock them) and pay $20 to have it done by local shop.

I've never done a flush on any cars that I have owned. Usually I just top off any leaks to the brake fluid, auto transmission, power steering etc. when it is low. Not sure what to do now that manufacturers seal the auto transmission and you can no longer add any.
