Default What 60K Services Are Must Do's?

Quick question I hoped you guys could address. What services would you consider absolute must do's for my 08 Max that just turned 60k? I've seen the scheduled maintenance an much of it I've done preemptively.

Drain and Fill the CVT? There seems to be debate around that.

Let me know what you think please. And perhaps what you've paid...if you paid, to have any of the services done you couldn't do yourself.

thanks!

Agreed. What can I expect to shellout for that? I know prices may vary slightly based on location.

I think I paid 400+/- for it.

It seemed fair enough and for critical service, I don't mind paying full price for guaranteed work.

On the schedule 2 maintenance plan the cvt fluid should be changed at 60k miles. The schedule 1 maintenance plan is at 30k miles. I had mine done at the dealership at 40k. I think it ran about 250. All they did was a drain and refill. Ill buy the tool next time and do it myself and keep the receipts of the purchase of the tool to remove the drain plug and cvt fluid.
