I saw something interesting at a WalMart this evening...

Group,
I was at the WalMart Super Center in Aurora, IN this evening, after having dinner with my parents & brother at Grand Victoria Casino.

I saw Mopar ATF +4 in stock at the Wally World for $4.72 a quart.
I also saw Wally World brand ATF +4 for $2.97 a quart.
They had ~ 8 qts. of Mopar ATF +4
And at least the same amount of the in house brand.

Any thoughts??

The wally world in MA had the MOPAR oil filters that fit the LH's and it looked so much nicer then the Fram shit they sell.

Its good to know of another place to get the mopar atf, I think I paid $7.50 a quart at the dealership.

I wonder about the wally world atf, I did put Valvoline ATF+4 in my brothers LHS when we did the trans filter. I had 3.5 quarts of mopar but we needed more so I had to use valvoline.
It smelled and looked exactly like the mopar even said for chrysler vehicles.

Did the wally world brand say for chrysler vehicles?

That's a new one on me, maybe the same manufacturer is now making both and sent [email protected] the mopar bottles by mistake and the fools there didn't bother trying to send them back just scanned the upc or priced it higher and put it on the shelf?

Well, Wally World has to have it made to the ATF +4 spec to have it labelled as such.
I have seen Valvoline, Advance Auto Parts brand, and now the Wally World brand.
I have options for when I change the fluid/filter over the winter.

So Mopar has made a deal with the devil. I didn't know things were that desperate.
