FYI this is not applicable for CVT's as the is not a true transmission fluid. It is more like a hydraulic fluid IE not red.

You are correct. Title updated to reflect 04-06 only.

CVT Owners (2007-2008) should check this thread: http://my6thgen.org/f7/how-check-your-cvt-transmission-fluid-health-3157/#post53398

if it's in good shape it is a translucent pinkish red if it is old or your tranny is overheating it will be dark red to brown.
