VW specifies lifetime transmission fluid, but the supplier, ZF calls for 60,000 mile fluid changes. Who do you believe?
I dunno, but probably not the one wanting to sell me more fluid.
BTW, your warranty is up before the first 60,000 mile fluid change.
True, but I’m perfectly willing to gamble that my car will be a rusty clunker (probably someone else’s) with multiple problems long before unchanged trans fluid ever bites me in the ass.
Now, if I were to notice that the stuff looked dirty on the dipstick (which I almost never check) then I would consider replacement, especially with lotsa mileage. I wouldn’t necessarily expect it to do much good though.
