I got the Tranny Fluid in the PT changed

I specified to ONLY USE the Chrysler fluid for these transmissions. The bill reads: Tranny R/R Tranny Pan, Change Fluid and and filter kit. Tranny Filter Transmission Filter Kit. 5 quarts Transmission Oil @ $3 each. SB101 Chrysler Trans Fluid Additive.
What is this additive? Should I assume that the correct fluid was put in? I hate to question the shop, I wouldn't want them to think I don't trust them. I've been dealing with them for over 30 years.

They are simply not to be trusted. And my dealer knows that I don't trust them. The service writer works 6 days a week, 12 hours a day. He cheats anybody and everybody that he can. And the ironic thing is that he thinks the situation is standard and the best. The only reason that I go there is the warranty thing.

Whew...
Who did it?
This may not be good. Five quarts mean they did a drain and fill...
SB101 "Chrysler additive" means they used a generic ATF and added 'modifiers' to it. They did not use real ATF+4...

Boy this REALLY steams my clams... 20 effing years later and the bastards STILL can't be bothered to use the right damn fluid. I would assume that this applies to all vehicles that use a non-Dexron fluid as well and not just Chryslers. What do they put on the ticket when a car that takes Toyota T-IV or WS comes in? Better yet what do they do when a cone and belt CVT equipped vehicle like a Ford Freestyle comes in?
Makes me even more proud I can do the work myself and don't have to rely on the goons using Lubegard.

more than likely they used a friction modifier with a dexron3 fluid the modifier works good and is made to reformulate the fluid used it many times myself working at a Chrysler dealer with no ill effects

"Works good" should be works well.
Are we talking "no ill effects" as in it moved under its own power out of the parking lot and down the road or no ill effects as in the CVIs were all well within the normal range and it came back 30k later for another change without a failure or shifting problems. Also kindly share what Chrysler dealer this was so we can avoid it like the plague since they don't use the proper fluid.

The only reason I can imagine, correct me if I'm wrong, is that by doing that instead of buying the correct OEM Chrysler fluid that the customer expected to get, was so the dealer could charge the price of the real ATF+4 while installing a cheaper alternative. I'd be pissed if I went to a Chrysler dealer for a fluid and filter with the expectation of getting the PROPER fluid and parts and then found out that I got Dextron and an additive and a cheap fram filter.
