I was looking to put in a cheaper transmission fluid a few days ago, and I was at Canadian Tire just starting at the CVT fluid they had for under $10.
At the end of the day, this is an item you don't want to use a wrong fluid in, so I went to Chrysler and paid $24.99 for the actual CVTF+4 fluid, Mopar branded.
Yes, its a rip off. But when its your transmission you might as well use the spec fluid. The consequences can be dire for saving a quick $15 per litre.
