Never a problem in anything I've used it in! Honda, Toyota, Ford, will be using on the Nissan soon and maybe even the Ram down the road as it claims to be suitable

I have it in my 2003 Mercury Marauder (115k) my 2008 Hyundai Santa Fe that my wife pulls a horse trailer with (237k), my 2000 Nissan Xterra (138k) and my 1992 Mercury Capri MANUAL trans (146k). It is flawless in every application I have used it in. I also use it in the power steering systems in all the above.

No aftermarket auxiliary coolers, mostly stock but do have lift springs in the back now from King Springs of Australia. Valvoline synthetic fluid throughout. Good tires, and aligned regularly.

Buy it in cases from Walmart and stock it in my service department. It’s cheaper from Walmart than from my wholesalers. Use it in everything I can. Been using it in my wreckers for years. IMO hands down the best ATF fluid on the market. Of course, it can’t be used in everything so when the need arises will purchase the proper fluid of course. If Maxlife meets the specs innit goes without hesitation. I have had zero issues with it my fleet, personal and customers vehicles.

Cant beat the cost, that's for sure. I think it will go into my AS69RC at the 100,000km change.

And, is it a suitable replacement for Toyota Type T-IV fluid?

I just used some in my 2007 Silverado Classic. It has to be the most stinking smelling fluid I have ever encountered for a vehicle. Jug cap was in tact and sealed when I opened it. Oh my gosh does that stuff stink. Almost wonder if they put too much of some additive in this batch. I could smell it for days after using it in the garage and did not spill a drop anywhere.
