Another VERY important fact you need to know is to use Type T-IV ATF fluid. Buy it at a Toyota dealer ($5-$6/qt I think) and NOT a Lexus dealer (unless they will match the price, which I doubt). It's not available at regular auto shops or chain stores.

The only ATF product I could find on their website with a "V" in it is "DEXRON® III/ MERCON®/ MERCON® V ATF" and it does state it's recommended for Toyota (among others), but I didn't see anything specifically touting it as a replacement for Type T-IV. Was the product to which you were referring something that may not yet be on their website?

The obvious benefits of a replacement would be price and availability. Since I have a Toyota dealer a block away from work, and I can afford an extra $2-$3/qt every once in a while, I'm not really tempted to be on the "bleeding edge" of this one.
