Default Good Price For Transmission Fluid Change?

So i hit the 60K mark and figured I better change the CVT fluid since its never been changed while i have had the car. I called the dealership and they quoted me a price of $206 to change it. Is this high? I know there is a write up and was planning on doing it myself, but i will be real busy for the next couple of weekends and i dont want to mess something up even though it seems pretty straightforward. He did say that they do not do flushes on the cvt so its pretty much a drain and refill.

maybe you can do it yourself. It's probably not that hard.

Do it yourself. Mr. Dolla can get you a good price on the fluid.
