Full Answer

Dexron automatic transmission fluid is available in four common weights, Dexron, Dexron II, Dexron III and Dexron VI. The numbers after each fluid are indicators to the succession of when each type was produced. As of 2015, Dexron III and Dexron VI are the most common types of fluid used inside of Subaru automatic transmissions.
