Liqui Moly ATF 1800 for CX-5

Has anyone used this fluid? Specifically lists Mazda FZ transmission as being compatible. Rockauto sells it 1 Liter bottles for under $6. I bought 4 quarts to do a drain and fill and was wondering if anyone else has tried it.

Youre mixing ⅓ fresh ATF with ⅔ old Mazda FZ ATF when you do drain-and-fill. I wouldnt want mix different brand of ATFs, however its claimed to be compatible, like that. If I can drain all ATF out like engine oil, I may consider something different which is FZ compatible. (But I wont). IMO, it may serve you better just not to change your ATF if you want to save money buying some cheaper ATF.

Heres the spec for LIQUI MOLY TOP TEC ATF 1800. It meets too many approvals and specs like a universal ATF. I wouldnt have too much confidence to use, especially mix this multi-purpose、one-size-fit-all ATF with Mazda ATF FZ.

The word COMPATIBLE means it will work but, probably is not the best for your transmission. I'd just get the correct fluid if it were my vehicle. Ed

I wouldnt use it. I find it very worrisome that its listed as compatible for all of those brands, too. I think youd be better off not touching the fluid vs using this stuff.

Would not, especially if you have a 15 or older cx5 that had some units with bearing issues
