Re: edge transmission problems
Depending on the miles it may be past due for a fluid service. Depending on the owners manual, don't believe it when they say "lifetime transmission fluid". A lot of manufacturers are saving the cost of a transmission fluid dipstick, let alone an easy aftermarket way to check fluid without having to drop the pan. Most sensors are attached to or are located around the valve body so a fluid change may be required.
Most sensors are $30-60 each. Add in labour, a transmission service, and tax and I bet it will be close to the $700 mark. If the vehicle is no longer under warranty you can save on labour costs and find a local reputable repair facility nearby instead of sticking it to the dealer. Shops have the option to buy programming from the manufacturers now to properly diagnose and repair more intricate problems on newer vehicles.
