Greetings From Arench!

This ATF is type SP3 or SP-III that is used by Hyundai, Mitsubishi and Kia. I usually grab it at the Hyundai dealer near me for 6 dollars per quart.

If your not going to buy it from a dealer then you have to find one of these at the auto parts store: Redline D4, Beck/Arnley Premium OE ATF, Castrol multi-vehicle import ATF, Royal Purple MAX ATF, Eneos type SP, or Wolf's Head full synthetic ATF.

There can be others I have not mentioned as well, just look for the meets SP-III specification.
