Your owner manual should have all the info you need as to what type of ATF your 4EAT needs.

Use Motul ATF. I find it way better than Castrol Full Synthetic ATF

My driving style is very spirited. So I wanted a fluid that would not be affected nby heat much and minimum slippage. Motul solve that.

So far, its better than OEM and Castrol Full Synthetic.

I use Motul is all aspect of my car, except for the radiator

My car goes into gear like a real sequential tranny. Very Nice

Look at it this way. Motul supports Subaru WRC and use throughout Europe and the rest of the world.

Thats my comparison. I would love to try others, but I have use other motul stuff and see the high quality.

Since I purchase Motul ATF from rallispec, there seems to still have some

Get a complete flush when changing.
