Default 2003 Saturn Ion Transmission Fluid

I was wondering if there was an alternatitive to using Saturns transmission fluid for my AF-23 transmission. I called the dealer and they want to sell me 2 big bottles of transmission fluid and the additive for 105.00 dollars.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

I have an 06 auto, but I use AMSoil for my motor, and when I need to change my transmission fluid I will most likely use their Universal Automatic Transmission Fluid. I just looked online and it is listed at $9.55 per quart. You can also talk to a representative just to make sure it is what you need (says for GM Dexron II, III & VI). Check it out
https://www.amsoil.com/storefront/atf.aspx
I would probably go to someone else to change it now, but that will hopefully change for me in the future...

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

any ATF that meets the specs of your car (GM Dexron ?) While
Amsoil makes a good product I would not spend that much. I use Valvoline Synthetic from Napa, $4.29 a quart.

I like to use synthetic, I'd say that's pretty important for ATF.
