Re: Honda ATF in a Subaru?
I started looking around the Subie forums also and found related issues. But most long term owners were saying stick with the factory fluid, even though the cost is high. It is actually just as high if not more for many universals, especially Amsoil, BG, Redline, etc.
Even though both Honda & Subie can use Dexron III in an emergency they still require a drain and fill at your earliest convenience. I would not don't assume the other properties in the fluid are the same for both vehicles. Dexron is just a compatible base.
