    I want to change out my ATF- just drain and fill, and maybe repeat once.

    For my Corolla many suggested Valvoline MaxLife. I went with it. In my Odyssey I have always used DW1, but the price is now $9/QT vs about $4.50 for Maxlife. There’s a fair bit of positive comments on the net re: MaxLife.

    Thoughts?

    JMHO …
    Reading on how picky Honda’s can be with concern with their fluids.
    Might not be a bad idea to stick with OEM recommendations.

    Yeah I know. But there’s a fair bit of positive feedback on the maxlife. So just asking.

    +1 for Honda DW-1, although I have no experience with MaxLife.

    I’ve been using MaxLife in my ’98 CRV and ’05 Pilot for over six years without a single issue. It’s ML all day for me.
