What's wrong with this oil if you are looking at those kind of specs :

Yes the viscosity spec's are almost identical to PP 5W-30.
Anyway, I like ENEOS more than most 5W-30 syn's on the market if you can get it for a decent price.

A NAPA store near me has a full line of ENEOS products. They don't put the prices on each item but the oils (0w20, 5w20, 5w30) are $7.95 a quart (slightly less in the 1 gallon jug).
They also have the SP III A/T and A Dexron type Universal that is $11 a quart (I think)...Is Eneos really any better than the syns I can buy at WM?

Directly from the link. Oh, my.

Probably not any "better" than what one can buy at Walmart. But, if one can get it at a good price, go for it. It's not that common up here. Our NAPAs sell it, too. They do offer a fair number of drivetrain fluids for Japanese vehicles.

I think you can get it cheaper on ebay.
