From the Manufacturer
Pentosin ATF 1 LV is a fully synthetic high performance Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) for life-time application in automatic gear boxes. It can be used when a “low viscosity” ATF is required. Pentosin ATF 1 LV is formulated by means of the best commercially available synthetic base oils and additive components. A high performance shear stable VI-Improver plus modern antiwear chemistry and friction modifiers guarantee a sound stable friction performance in modern automatic transmissions equipped with an electronically controlled converter clutch.
The Mercedes 722.6 transmission or 5GTronic is one of the most popular Mercedes transmissions in operation used from 1996-2015. This transmission was used across various models from the C-Class up to the SLR McLaren supercar. In addition, it was also installed in various Porsche 996 models, supercharged Jaguars, and various Chrysler/Jeep/Dodge applications. This is an electronically controlled transmission and most common failures are electronic on these models. Shift modules which are integral to the shift lever assembly commonly fail when they are inadvertently exposed to soft drinks and coffee. Conductor Plates commonly fail when the speed sensors stop functioning. These failures typically lead to erratic shifting, a check engine light and a transmission stuck in limp mode.
The most common fluid leak is at the 13 PIN electrical connector, if left unattended, it is not uncommon for fluid to wick its way up to the transmission control module. Good practice is to change the fluid level every 40k miles, and periodically check for leaks. This transmission is not equipped with a dipstick and requires a special service tool to verify fluid level. When properly maintained, the transmission should last the life of the vehicle.

Pentosin 1LV auto transmission fluid is the best stuff for my 2013 Volvo XC60 with 6 speed auto. I use of these 5L jugs to drain and fill the transmission at each oil change. Keeps my fluid ruby red and my car runs just like new. DO NOT believe the dealership when they tell you the transmission "is sealed and you don't need to change the fluid." Baloney this why transmissions fail prematurely due to dirty burnt oil.
Good deal for the money. Still works fine after a few months now.
