Hi everyone,

This is ddev from Toronto and it's my first post.

Last week I owned a 2015 CR-V SE and it's current mileage is 57,700km. The suv was driven 70% city and 30% highway in GTA.

I'm wondering when should I change the Transmission fluid? Should I wait for the Maintenance Minder Code 3 to appear OR change it before that?

I checked the Service Records and the previous owner never changed it since the code never appeared. He did all the services in a Honda Dealer. Last time (about 2 weeks ago) when he changed the Engine Oil, the dealer asked asked him to change the Transmission Fluid and the Brake Fluid but he refused.

TIA

On my older Gen. 3, there is no code for brake fluid, it's straight up 3 years. Wait for mm for transmission fluid.

I also have a 3rd generation and my trust worthy mechanic told me to change it every 30,000 miles.

The accord forums report the code appearing around your mileage.
Nothing wrong in changing it.

Have any recommendation which Dealer OR any other place in Toronto/Scarborough would be better for that purpose?

Definitely worth searching out some customer comments for local dealers.

Good to have an honest dealer. I think a big reason the MM is to keep the dealers from ripping off customers but they do it anyway. The MM on my 2016 came on just past 50,000 miles for me to change it at the next oil change. Brake fluid is based on time and the interval has not been reached yet.
