Is anyone using Valvoline Maxlife ATF in the Cruze?

Multi-Vehicle (ATF) Full Synthetic Automatic Transmission Fluid - Valvoline

It claims it's AW-1, AW-2, etc compatible. Only big issue I'm concerned about is an overseas version of Maxlife say it's not compatible with "awtf-80 sc" See: Maxlife - Valvoline says not to use in Aisin Warner TF 80SC? | Bob Is The Oil Guy

I've been avoiding Amsoil products because of their marketing tactics. I think they make good products but they're normally over priced in my opinion. The people that recommend them would probably bathe at night and drink it in the morning instead of that underperforming generic coffee if that was an option. :ROFLMAO:

Here is a comparison between newest Asin ATF and Maxlife/Amsoil.

Maxlife is 5points higher viscosity with Amsoil being 3 points lower.

The Amsoil LV has the same viscosity as the Aisin. 5.8 vs. 5.9 @ 100c.

The Amsoil SS LV ATF is a premium product. Read the SDS it has expensive base oils in the formula, nothing compares to it.
