I wont mention any horror stories about clutch material melting etc.

SPIII discolors very easy and fast. its about 6$/qt here.
Hyundai also specifically tests the fluid before any warranty work.

That being all said. My elantra touring had the drain too. it was good for 3qt of 8.5 (going from memory)

also from what I've heard
ATF +3 is much closer to SPIII than merc/dex as far as fluid properties
(atf +4 superceded atf +3 )
