Having said that, the early models came with Dextron/Mercon fluids. Originally they came with the SR engine and transmission. After that, Nissan started production of the QR engines and transmission. It was with this switch that these Transmissions were filled with Nissan matic J. So while you are correct that Dextron/Mercon could be used according the manual, it is really for the earlier models with the SR engines. QR transmission require a different level of friction, hence the reason for Matic-J. While it may work, the manufacturers knows what work best, having done years of research and tests. Be guided accordingly.
