Did they want two bills to just change the tranny fluid ???  Yikes !!!  I
just changed the tranny fluid in my Silverado to Synthetic and I believe the
total bill for the fluid was around $50 and I changed it myself and put in a
new gasket and filter at the same time.  Obviously Chevy dealers don't
recommend synthetic in the tranny but they put it in the differentials of
the 4X4 and the engine when it is new...go figure.

     Would you go to all this trouble if you carried 3 passengers with you 
in a car pool everyday? The weight of the GPZ and a single bike trailer is 
about the same as 3 good sized people. I wouldn't sweat it.
