I wonder how much that dealer charges for a transmission flush...

I'll agree that the horror stories I've heard of flushes generally came from someone getting the sale price transmission flush at Jiffy Lube. I'm sure a competent technician will take the proper steps to ensure it's done correctly. As Jeepcares pointed out it's not recommended for WKs so perhaps it's a moot point.
$325 that is outrageous. Some cars it's required to fix a driveability issue but don't see it needing it at 25k.

At 92K with unknown maintenance (fluids looked good) I had my mechanic do all the fluids ($750 with tune up, not trivial). For the tranny he recommended a filter kit installation which requires a drain and refill. The transmission fluid is now pristine and smells nice too. I'll stick with that in the future.
