It’s probably been covered a billion times now but has anyone had any issues using this stuff in their Honda or Toyota?

I've used it in Honda, Toyota, Nissan and Hyundai where it was suitable for use for those applications. Worked perfectly.

Good deal! Since most of my trans pans bolts are rusted to [censored] I’ll just do a drain and fill. Hopefully that’s fine

Hondas, Acuras, Nissans, Toyotas including my 2001 Tundra.
Earlier this year I serviced a 2005(?) Civic with lower miles. Owned by a grandmother, was getting ready to give to grandson who teaches school in Galveston, TX.
I wanted to do 2 services a few thousand miles apart, but the car went to TX.

Later Toyotas call for the WS blend; I have never used that.
I have used Maxlife in Toyotas well into the 1990 years but nothing newer.
I plan on using the Idemitsu WS equivalent in our Lexus GS350.
If not it will be Maxlife as it is synthetic while WS is not.

I believe the ST Dex VI is a synthetic multi vehicle low viscosity trans fluid. But, you prob wont be able to beat the $18 a gallon Maxlife from Walmart.com

No issues in an 07 Tacoma or 2016 4Runner. Both have the A750 calling for WS.

There is, but it actually costs more than the name-brand Maxlife! crzy

The ST LV Multi-vehicle is over $6/qt mad
