Here's what I picked up from the Touch 'n Go website after receiving a mail about the card having a 10-year expiry life. I'm not sure whether it's a rumor or not, but it's definitely official that Touch 'n Go wants you to change your card if it's anywhere near 10 years old:
We would like to inform you that Touch 'n Go cards approaching to 10 years are subject to wear and tear. Kindly renew your card at the nearest Customer Service Counters.
