If it wasn't doing it at service time, their crystal ball may not have been working to say you will have problems later.

You say that the car gets serviced every 10,000 k's, does this include the auto transmission filter and fluid? The auto wont last too long without a regular service,especially if it gets used hard.I drive my auto like a manual a lot of the time,I service the transmission filter and fluid myself every 20,000 K's,its not much harder than changing the engine oil and filter.
