My wife's 2010 Nissan Armada is getting close to 30k miles. I will be adding a PML oversize trans pan cover to it and cleaning the screen at that point. I've consulted a well trusted tranny repair shop owner who actually has a 2011 TITAN (same trans) and his recommendation was to just suck it up and use the Matic S. he said Nissan phasing out the Matic J. His reason was simple: Said of the thousands of tranny's he had to repair/rebuild he can count Nissan on one hand. And he also said they can be fluid fussy. I've also talked to a very good friend who runs a large Toyota service center who in turn asked their sister Nissan service center about the Matic S fluid. Apparently they also do not recommend using anything other than S (what a surprise). Question is, is there an equivelant? And does anyone know what Matic S is? Full synthetic? blend, bad [censored] additive pack?? Just wondering. Dealership charges $14 and change here...service mangr. to service mngr. is $8 a quart! Not cheap stuff and there seems to be little info on it. If anyone know its you guys here! Thanks.
