Default Transaxle Oil Change

I got my vista's 20K service done. The total came to 3200/- for oil filter, fuel filter and oil change. Back at home I noticed that in the manual there was a line item which says the transaxle oil needs to be changed as well. Did not notice this on my bill and was not sure if this was done by the service center.

Can someone give some thoughts on what a transaxle oil change is and if its critical that i followup to ensure that this has been changed. The suggested duration for transaxle oil change for a vista is at 20K followed by the next one at 60K.
Anyone who has experience getting this changed for your cars?

Transaxle is the gearbox + differential in a front wheel driven vehicle. So no worries, the transaxle oil would have also been changed while servicing. Check if they have separately billed for the engine oil & the gear oil. If so, there is nothing to worry about.
