    Just use plain old 10w-30 petrol. I'm not sure about synthetic, but why? It's more expensive!

    or get Penzoil GM syncromesh transfluid. Costs 4.99 a bottle. Honda's is like 6 or so. All you need is 3 bottles, and you only use a little bit from the third bottle.

    Why go cheap. It's not like you have to go cheap because you change it ever few weeks, its $15-20 for better transmission feel for 20k+ miles. Why wouldn't you?
