Drained and filled my wife's 1994 Honda Civic, while also performing an axle replacement. It was locally available, fulfilled the DEXTRON-II transmission fluid specification in the Honda service manual, and looks like cherry juice - like everything else. I haven't observed (or expected) any noticeable change in performance, but a Honda Civic is hardly a hot-rod. This product is for older cars, so as long as you keep that in mind, you're set.

Overall, works well for a basic fluid replacement.

              Hi Jet, I'm glad to assist you! We would recommend the PEAK Dexron VI/Mercon LV Full Synthetic for that application same as your other vehicle. Do not use the standard Dexron III fluid in that vehicle.

              A:

              I'm glad to assist you, Reggie! The Dexron III is backwards compatible with Dexron II, meaning Dexron III can be used in an application requiring Dexron II. So, this #CQ420 fluid is compatible with your 1993 Nissan Altima.
