It works great. My tranny had a minor jerk and after drain and fill, now the tranny is super smooth. Cost less than half compared to Factory. Great Job Valvoline!!

Works Great for 2016 Mitsubishi Outlander
Honda Civic 1.5t
At 36k miles on my beloved civic, I was starting to get a slight hint of cvt tranny whine with the original fluid. I switched to the valvoline and the whine (as slight as it was) is now completely gone again. So far, I'm a fan! If'n the CVT fails in the future, well...I'll come back and change my review obviously. LOL But so far so good.
J1 = J4
Mitsubishi insists you use J4, but J1 is just as good in my opinion. When you have to search high and low for J4 and then pay $20 a quart at the dealership, it was worth it for me to try the J1 for $7.58. Cleared up what the mechanic had said was a bad shift solenoid instantly. Couldn't drive it more than 30 minutes before slipping before, just made a 6 hour trip no problem. Just a drain and fill, no filter change. I'm starting to think that for all the bad rap CVTs get, they really are indestructable if you take care of them.
Bite the bullet
I was worried about using this in my 2015 Nissan that calls for NS-3. The bottle said NS-2 approved but not 3, the Valvoline site said NS-3. I called customers support and they confirmed NS-3 so I used it. It has been at least 15,000 miles and no ill effects experienced.
Beats Nissan's NS-2 CVT at $20 per quart
This is a Full Synthetic CVT Fluid compatible with almost all makes (Nissan, Honda, Toyota, Ford, etc.) per Valvoline's website; except for the Hybrid CVT's (Toyota and Ford). Color is a light yellow/amber; in contrast, Nissans NS-2 is a amber-green color. You should be changing the CVT fluid every 30K-60K miles if you want your transmission to last. CVT Fluid is marketed as "lifetime" - how frequently you change the fluid will affect the "lifetime" of your vehicle. If you want to spend $3K to change a blown transmission, then don't change the CVT fluid.
