Flush Transmission Fluid?

I have a 2006 4 cyl Honda Accord. I got it in 2008 when it had about 30k miles on it. It now has about 115k. I've never changed the transmission fluid and keep hearing yes do it and no don't because of the sediments that get in there and flushing them out can be bad if you don't flush as recommended?

Any advice either way?

    Don't "flush" it with a machine, just do a "drop and fill" and a new filter. Do this every 30,000 miles. Be sure to use a Honda-approved ATF!

    Honda STRICTLY advises people to NEVER let anyone "flush" your transmission!

    Doing so forces the sediments and crud backwards into the transmission. Mr. S is totally correct.

    I don't think they even have a filter.

    I have our local Honda Dealer do this every 30,000 miles.
