Ford Synthetic Manual Transmission fluid

Is there a good alternative out there on the market for this. Or am I better to just get the fluid from the dealer and keep in the ford recommended transmission / gear oil for my Manual Trans. I am not fond of the idea of $20 per quart to do a fluid change but I will if I have to in order to maintain a good working Transmission and to help preserve the transmission for a long life.

I have a 2005 Focus ZX4 5 speed..
It has 100,000 on it and time for a fluid change.

Re: Ford Synthetic Manual Transmission fluid

20 bucks a quart is kinda pricey for oil, by older standards, but it's still a heck of a lot cheaper than a transmission. I did look around, didn't see any approved replacements other than the Motorcraft brand.

Ever notice that there's so many high performance parts available for GM products?

Did you ever think that maybe they NEED them?
