lifetime transmission fluid?

ok, i jus called the dealer asking for a transmission flush and the service guy told me I dont need a tranny flush because these cars are made to not need any tranny service. This is hard to believe I am going to another shop and get my tranny fluid changed anyways. Has anyone heard of this from their dealer before?

Here's a thread I posted with information on the tranny flush, where to get it done, and people's opinions on it whether to have it flushed. IMO, Definitely get it flushed.

that at 80K when the tranny goes you can pay 6K to have it fixed rather than 400$ for two transmission services.
