Many manufacturers fill the transmissions with longlife oil and say that, apart from topping up, you need not replace the oil.
However, this is not beneficial to you or the gearbox, sooner or later the oil will de grade and then affect the transmission, which will result in heavy costs to you.
The decision to replace the oil is questionable, because if the oil has NEVER been changed, its possible that by changing the oil, it could flush and clean parts in the valve block that are worn and the build up of deposits from the old old is keeping in tact. This could result in problems of shifting and even slippage or even loss of drive.This is a risk you will have to decide to take or not.
I will only change oil at the customers go ahead after explaining the possibilities.
When i was at training for ZF gearboxes in Germany, the instructor gave me the official version of the long life oil, saying there is no need for change etc and at the end said that in his opinion , that is not what he would do, with a wink. And i have heard many hooror stories about the aftermath of changing oil when the box has done 100k + Km
I could not recommend to you, one way or the other to replace the oi, only, that if you do decide to replace the oil, then use a synthetic blend with the specification of DEXRON 3
Hope this gives you some insight
