why do you say the atf fluid should be changed every oil change which is 5000 miles is it really necessary and not a waste of money?

You can do everything Honda does yourself. Change your oil and filter. Clean your air filter, rotate tires, etc. You'll save yourself a lot of money by not taking it to the dealer.
