Hello, my name is***** you for the question. It is a good sign that it is shifting fine. What I would do maintenance wise is have the fluid serviced and not flush. A simple fluid change is all that you need and that will prevent any damage to the transmission. I would then proceed to change it every 30,000 miles and you should be fine. Also make sure that the fluid that is used is not aftermarket as that can damage the transmission. I hope this answers your question. Please let me know if you need more help.
