My point exactly. Dealer fill is not factory fill. I've had the dealership refill the transmission with GL5 in the past, and have gotten into arguments with ignorant service writers who insist the fluid is ok for use in our transmission, only to eventually have their regional service reps correct them when they get called in to settle the issue. The guys turning wrenches on the line couldn't give a shit - they're just trying to make time on your job, and their asses are covered because they "used what the Parts dept gave them". I suggest doing some research and finding out what the rating is on the fluid they've been using and proceeding from there.
