if it was a major service and done at the dealer the update would have been free of charge

Software updates are improvements over the old code in those boxes so there should be nothing to fear of an update. Only exception is the ECU if you have a tune since I may prevent you from unloading and reloading your tune if needed.

I guess i'm concerned that to fix transmission shift issues, that they may neuter the car with the new software.... like the torque limited 04 & 05 Autos...

Yeah, that's the one of the downsides of an auto and one reason I'm glad I have a stick. I got the latest and greatest updates back in 2011 and the car works great so I have no concerns about staying at v2.0 for the rest of my car's lifetime.
