yeah the new honda trannys need lubricants with finer molecules. Gearbox is right, any other tranny fluid for the auto and manual 7thgens will cause extreme premature wear. I have heard a few nightmares about people using other stuff(worn syncos and shift problems for manuals/shifting probs for autos, etc.... Honda makes quality lubricants why use anything else??? If you use lucas or royal purple it will not help anyhting. Yes they make awesome stuff but its not good for our cars.
