These products are all new every year?? They are a revolution!!! Razor blades, mens shirts, TVs, wiper blades, gutter guards, hearing aids... according to the ads. But also all new last year

Dexron (no "t") III is sold under various labels such as D/M, D3 compatible, etc, because Dexron III is no longer a current license. I'd just pick a quality name-brand and use it.

If you're asking if Dex VI is backwards-compatible, it is for many applications but not all.

What vehicle do you have.? If you insist on Dex 3 , here is some synthetic ATF meeting Dex 3 at Walmart. Packaging might be different for you so read the back of the container. Hope that helps.

The photo above didnít pick up the part on the Dexron description but it was Dexron 3. You can see it in the French part.

Adieu!

Look for "meets D/M certification" on the bottle. Every parts store will have it.

Just a suggestion, when asking question like this, please state the vehicle make and model and what application in that vehicle is of interest (Trans or Power Steering, etc.).

I've got a gallon of SuperTech Dex/Merc in my flam locker... AFAIK they still sell it.

Should be able to get Dex/Merc anywhere.

For GM applications, it is backward compatible.
