I was reading on this forum and someone mentioned VW's new recommended transmission fluid service was 50K miles. But I just went through my 2017 USA warranty and Maintenance manual and it says tht it should be done at 80K miles. So which is correct? My brother has a 2016 and the dealer also told him 80k miles for the transmission fluid and "filter" change.
Any insight on what is recommended? I know DSG is at 40K miles, but I always went by 50k. Its still early yet for me, but I wanted to do a drain/fill at half the recommended. But is it 25K or 40K

If indeed it is 50K miles does anyone have a source that it is the "official" recommended, since I only have the manuals that came with my car to go by.
