Default Lifetime fluids

The other month I changed the ATF on the Sienna even though Toyota states that it doesn't need it for the life of the vehicle. Admittedly it looked pretty good still.

This weekend I went to do a coolant flush and when I opened the cap it looked freaking brand new! I already spent $40 on OEM coolant lol. Toyota states it should last 200,000km!

So question is, do you guys believe in lifetime fluids? Should I change it anyway?

There is no such thing as lifetime fluids. Its more of a selling tactic by manufacturers. Fluids will break down and become contaminated over time. Change it, its good preventative maintenance.
