'17 GTI with 27k mi. Going to be nomadic/road tripping for next 6 months: Things to check/fix under warranty before I leave?

I have a 2017 GTI Sport 6MT with 27k miles on it. I bought it certified preowned at 15k miles, so I still have 8k 12k miles left of CPO warranty.

I'm going to be nomadic for work for the next 6 months, and will be driving from site to site every 4 weeks. Google maps calculated my total driving distance to be ~10k mi just getting site to site.

Is there anything anyone recommends checking/servicing before a long road trip? Anything that tends to wear out around the 30k mi mark? Hoping to get anything that needs to be replaced done under warranty before I leave.

Obviously I will be starting the trip with fresh oil and filters, I have plenty of life on my tires and brakes as well. I'm also planning on doing the VAQ service a smidge early before I leave, and might exchange transmission fluid while I'm at it just because I don't know how the initial owner treated the transmission.

Original powertrain warranty is 5yr/60k according to all my paperwork.

CPO warranty I got was 2 year/24k mi. I didn't purchase any additional warranty. I thought it was 2/20k though, so I'm glad I checked.
Yep, your statements and mine are not mutually exclusive.

the Factory Warranties are as follows:

B2B: 36 Months / 36,000 miles
Powertrain: 60 months / 60,000 miles

CPO extends your B2B from 3/36 to 5/60, so slaps on top of your Powertrain.

So you are covered until 5 years from in-service date, since your mileage is so low

Huh. Are you sure the CPO B2B adds on to the original B2B? When I purchased it the original B2B had just expired at 36 months, so I thought the new warranty would be for an additional 2 years or 24k, not 2 years or 60k

I am positive it extends your factory B2B to 5/60. I had a CPO 2015 GTI that had interior work done @ 53K miles under my CPO B2B with a $50 deductible
