you can always ask your fave auto parts store whether they carry it... if not at least provide you with a suitable cross match. For my own peace of mind, i always ask for some proof that it is indeed a compatible cross match, or it should show on the label at lest that it is.

In case you are unable to find it, the dealer will always have it in stock. a few $ more to spend isnt so bad. after all, semi-synthetic tranny oil isn't easy to come by anywhere.
