The part numbers from the 2003 service manaul for the Getrag manual in the VUE.

GM part number 88861800 (Canadian P/N 88861801)

Dexron three is what is called for but GM now only has the Dexron six (so far as I know) which will be fine for the trans. They improve the fluid but not normally to the point where older units can't use it.

This is true when it is used as an automatic trans fluid.
