My dealer recommends changing fluids in my 2015 Forester, at 60k, I think it was. The Subaru manual says just check the fluid levels - it does not say change fluid, ever, it looks like.

How valid is the dealer recommendation? Is there a reason, or just a profit motive?

Is your car a manual or automatic?

I typically do transmission services on all manual gearboxes right ~25k after break-in, and then every 40k after.

Well yes the manual says just to check the fluid levels, but there really isn’t a lifetime fluid, doesn’t matter if it’s a manual transmission or not the rear end oil should be changed also.
