Changing Transmission Fluid soon...should I change any other fluids too?

I've been noticing my transmission is shifting a little jerkier in the low gears. My transmission dip stick reads a bit low and the color is that dark amber/wine red color. Might be time to change.

Got the car at 56k miles, now 13k miles later it's only had A1 and B1 service but I thought I might as well change it now, regardless of MID. Main question is, should I change the transfer case fluid as well? And even the rear differential fluid? Or should I just change the rear diff fluid when MID advises me to? Thanks in advance everyone!

Will do sir! Guess I won't be following the MID for those changes anymore. Slight bummer.

My A123 (oil, transimisison, transfer case) came up at around 50k miles. Rear differential (item 6) came a little bit earlier.
Maybe your previous owner didn't following the MID?
If you bought the car used it is always a good idea to change all fluids.
However I bought the car new and now at 80k miles I never see (item 5 coolant) come up. Not sure if MID is just wrong on this one. Maybe I should change it soon to be safe.
