    Default Vitz 03: ZIC ATF III oil

    hello guys,

    Can some of you experts share their thoughts on the ZIC ATF III oil for auto trannys ?
    I have been using Toyota ATF IV for couple of months, then i had bit of problems with my car yesterday , when i went to pick up my car last night , my mechanic who i trust more than myself (with cars) changed the oil to ZIC ATF III instead of Toyota ATF IV..
    After reading few posts and reviews about zic III , people are satisfied with it ... can someone tell me if the ZIC type III ok for my vitz ? or shall i drain all the zic oil and change to toyota atf oil tomorrow ??

    Please do help

    Thanks alot

    ZIC is DEXRON III compliant so that takes care of the quality standard. It is also a high quality lubricants brand, so I don't see why it wouldn't perform well.

    I don't know, but I feel Honda and Toyota Genuine products are sold at an unfair premium.

    I believe the 03 vitz needs ATF IV not ATF III, your mechanic should consider a new career.
    1. A car is only worth what someone is willing to pay for it, 2. Resale wont save your life in an accident, 3. Genius has limits, stupidity has none, 4. Never argue with an idiot, they will bring you down to their level & beat you with experience, 5. Growing old beats the alternative -- dying young! 6. انّا للہ و انّا الیہ راجعون
