Has anyone used Valvoline MaxLife Multi-Vehicle ATF in a vw Tiguan? I believe mine is a Aisin 6 speed automatic. Not sure if it’s a 09m or 09g?
I feeling like after changing the fluid the transmission is having issues shifting when the engine is cold. Once it warms up seems like it shifts a bit better. When it’s cold it jerks the car a bit when shifting.

09M

I have used Liqui Moly toptec 1200 (and lubegard red) and pentosin ATF-1 (with lubegard platinum) without issues in my 16 Tiguan

Did you refill with the same amount of fluid that was in there before? :unsure:

Sometimes, problems like that, poor shifting after changing the fluid, can be a result of not adding the correct amount back in.

The Aisin transmissions uses a level tube, so you fill it up, make sure it's at right temperature, shift through the gears, and then let it drain off to the level tube.
