I assume this is an automatic transmission, you didn't say.
There is no dip stick on the transmission any longer.
You will have to go under the car to check. You may want to go to your local instant oil change and have them check the level.
If you feel you want to check it, here is a description of the location and process.
Make certain the vehicle remains level while checking the fluid.
Located just above the top sealing flange of the transmission oil pan you will find a threaded plug. Remove the plug and see if transmission fluid drips out of the hole. If so, the fluid level is correct. If not, remove the red fill cap on top of the transmission, driver side. Add fluid to the transmission until fluid dribbles out of hole.
Replace and tighten the plug.

You need to raise the vehicle and start it. Remove the plug near where the passenger side driveshaft comes out. The head of the plug is 7/16. Trans fluid will stream out of the hole when the engine is running when the transmission is full, If fluid doesn't run out, fill the trans until fluid runs out. The fill cap is red and it is on top under and around the air cleaner box. If you need more help let me know.

This model doesn't have a trans dipstick. To check trans fluid level there is a plug on the right side/passenger side above the transmission pan about 2 to 3 inches.The plug has an 11 or 12 mm head on it. Remove this plug while vehicle is running and at operating temperature if fluid comes out of the where the plug was then the level is adequate. To add transmission fluid there is a red or black plastic cap on top of the transmission on the driver side.You will need a transmission funnel to add to it if fluid is need.
