Owner's manual doesn't mention anything on gear oil change

Swift RST imported to SL with 46000km.

The owners manual doesn't mention anything about gearbox oil change/intervals.

A*W recommends to change every 40,000km.

Appreciate an expert view on this.

Congrats on your car!

Based on our environment, 40,000km does seem okay, but I'd recommend earlier changes at 25,000km just to be safe. 

When bought from the right place, oil is wayyyyyyy cheaper than a gearbox repair bill.

The CVT boxes are considered to be non-serviceable items....so the manual would not have an oil change requirement. Only thing is that the workshop manual with the scheduled pre-emptive maintenance listing will have check and replace at 100,000km. However this does not work for conditions similar to SL...depending on the usage and the gearbox itself..anything from 20K - 40K seems to be what is recommended by most agents in SL.
