According to an older thread on the subject, anything but the 2001 model uses ATF+4 trans fluid.

Crewzin is correct. I have a 2003 Limited N/A and I put AFT+4 in it (although I actually didn't add to the reservoir. I sophoned out the old fluid and changed it to the new--just because it's been in there since 2003.)

...and even though I have a 2001, my power steering pump went bad in 2003 and when it was replaced, ATF+4 was used to refill. Like you Tim, I just last month siphoned as much as I could from the system and refilled with new ATF+4.
