it isn't needed on a 2005.. there are a few diff. opinions on a flush. I've heard it causing leaks... I've always just drained the fluid out and cleaned the over flow bottle. fill it up and I just do that ever year. just my .02

Yep not necessary as long as you are doing regular drain-and-fill service per the service schedule. In fact unless you already have 30K there is no need to drain the coolant yet.
