But when we use our experience and common sense, the so called "life-time" fluid simply doesn't exist! The "life-time" ATF is only good for the life of warranty period, 5 years or 60,000 miles, offered by Mazda. Honda does specify ATF change in their maintenance schedule. VW doesn't specify, but then people found out the "shelf life" stamped on the bottle for OEM VW ATF is only two years! And how can we expect this VW "life-time" ATF can last for the life of the automatic transmission?
    I don't know which VW you're referring to but VW TDIs had a OCI on the DSG of 40k miles.

    Cabin filter can be washed with a nylon brush, it's pretty tough material. Amazon sells filters for around $10.

    OP need not worry for a long time imho.

    Our CX-5 should be paid off at around 80k miles. At that point I'm going to do a lot of DIY work. Now changing of belts and hoses I'll leave up to the dealership once I get a X% off coupon in the mail. I'll have hoses and coolant done at the same time too. Mazda coolant is supposed to be better as it does not corrode the oem hoses I've read.

    Engine oil, tranny fluid, brake fluid/pads/rotors, filters, all these I'll do DIY. There are some grey areas for me though including:

    Steering fluid, water pump, fuel filter. Not sure if these are easy to do. Well water pump could be done with belts?

    Steering is electric, so no worries there.

    It's Tiptronic transmission on B5.5 Passat although mine is a V6 with stick shift. The Steptronic automatic transmission on my BMW E39 also uses "lifetime" ATF and has no ATF change interval.
