Depends on how much you drive it etc, and the condition its in. If you've already had it checked (entered on their work order) with their responds. Keep the work order as proof in case they try and come back at you for not bring it to an authorized service centers attention. But insist with LA service center there is something wrong. Changing the fluid will only bring the fluid quality back but not correct the cause of the overheating.
I would suggest calling one or more LA dealer and explain the symptoms and fluid state. See what they say about a solution. mention you are out of town and need this rectified on the first visit. If need be even call Chysler customer service for guidance and if they recommend a dealer in the LA area who know the transmission. Those phone calls would save a lot of grief down the line. Something is wrong if the fluid is overheating and any mechanic worth his grease and skinned knuckles with know that. If its a tranny problem and still under the powertrain warranty. They will cover the fluid as part of the repair or replacement of the CVT unit. Focus on fixing the problem.
