None. Check fluid levels to make sure there has not been a loss of fluid, but there should be no need for maintenance at that low miles.
If it is an automatic, I would change ATF around 90,000 miles.
A manual transmission is basically good for life, as long as the level is good.

2009 chevy hhr 2.2l keys on ignition but won't turn car off and keys won't come out

There is a service bulletin for this from G.M.If you have less than 36k miles it is covered under warranty.The warranty on your vehicle is a 3 year 36k miles bumper to bumper warranty.The powertrain is 5 years 50k miles.Your ignition cylinder would not be powertrain.Powertrain is considered your engine and transmission.I will give you the bulletin number and the part number.This is for replacement of the ignition cylinder.The bulletin number is 09-02-35-005c.The part number is 20869121.These are G.M.numbers so they are only good at a G.M.dealership.If you have a dealership that you regularly go to.You should take it there and have them fix this.Let me know if you have anymore questions.Good luck.

What is the recommended transmission service schedule.

You did not indicate if it is an automatic or manual trani..

A automatic trani should be serviced around every 30k miles..

A manual trani should be done every 80k miles or so..

have a great day !

Does fine shifting when cold after heats up slips

those trany are none for problems. first is to check your fluid level if its good then to the trany shop it goes, you can try having the trany fluid flush if it hasnt been done every 30,000 miles.if not then you may need a rebuild.

Just over my 3yr 36k mile warranty by 900 miles and my car is in the shop for the engine. Why won't they give me a rental? Why all the back and forth to even get my repairs done with the head office. It's...

My friend, you are venting your arguement with Suzuli at a 'do it yourself' advice site. I suggest you contact Suzuki or your servicing dealer directly with this issue.

For my own part, I have found free rental cars to use during routine maintenance are not provided by any dealer I have used.

Thanks for considering

What service my honda pilot needs at 22500 miles

At 22500 Normal stuff like regular oil chages etc..

At 30,000-ish exchange all fluids.. Radiator, break, power stearing, trani (if auto)

On the trani - I strongly feel that a FULL fluid exchange should be done.. They normally only do a "pan drop" only exchanging about half the fluid or less.. Makes no sense to me.. Pay a little more and exchange ALL the trani fluid..
I have my 10 year old trani fluid fullly exchaned every 40-k to 50-k and now have 160-k on it with no leaks and works like the day it was new..

Most people dont understand that old/dirty fluids is what causes leaks and break down..

Also - have you breaks inspected..

Regular maintenance

If you had the 30,000 mile maintenance done, nothing of any real importance, just oil change, tire rotation, check air filter, check all fluids, tire pressures, etc. 30-60-90 K miles are important.
