Is an oil change for the automatic gearbox necessary? In the user manual it says no, not necessary. But i wonder, will it really last in the long run?

I would say yes, have done this once on mine and it felt much better. Mileage is now such that I plan to do it again.

Any gearbox will benefit from an oil change whether it's a manual or auto

I did mine myself on my 2009

Manual says no because they want the car to die and be too expensive to repair at some point - and then you need to buy a new car.

They know the gearbox will safely last 100k miles with no fluid change, but common sense says the more you change the fluid, the longer smething will live
