Here's what my Haldex fluid looks like after 5 years, 51K miles. Very dark. Strainer was fairly clean. Lots of videos and a couple of write ups here on how to service the system. Will consider doing this again in 15-20K mi intervals.

The AOC fluid that came out of our XC70 after about 60KKm looked about the same.
By itself, the dark color doesn't necessarily mean that the fluid has degenerated much.
It would be interesting to see the results of a test (hint)...

Does Volvo recommend 50k intervals?
No recommended interval from Volvo. Decided to change mine while doing other maintenance. VW and Borg Warner have some recommendations based on driving styles. Neither are claiming this to be a lifetime fluid.
