nothing good can happen by letting the fluid continue to degrade. It might mean a slow death, but death anyway..
From a small amount of personal experience and LOTS of reading, fresh fluid has helped MANY folks get back to like-new trans operation.
another concern with this car would be the most recent timing belt system service. If aftermarket parts were used, a premature failure is more likely and, major valve damage can occur due to interference design. It may be worthwhile to accelerate the TB service to get OEM or other japanese-quality parts in there. Unless you can get that service record, and it's specific enough to satisfy any doubts about the parts quality, it's a real risk.
