Fluid: Recommended vs. Generic

Generics seem to be everywhere these days. Grocery stores, pharmacies, etc. Generics are always cheaper and appear to be the same, but there are key differences. This is also the case with transmission fluid and other essential fluids your vehicle needs to function properly. The major difference between generics and manufacturer recommended fluids are usually the fillers used to produce the generic. These fillers can alter the way the fluid protects your transmission. This can cause incorrect consistency or viscosity for your vehicle which leads to numerous other problems. Vibrations, inconsistent shifting, internal damage, and overall poor performance are some of the outcomes from not using the manufacturer’s recommended fluid in your vehicle’s transmission. Generics do have their place in this world but when it comes to your vehicle, they may not be welcome.
