I looked at a new miata and discovered it does't have a dip stick for the transmission! No way to check the trans fluid!

The trans fluid dipstick for automatics is going the way of rear drum brakes, two point seatbelts, and eight-track tape players.

More and more automakers are eliminating, declaring the transmission "sealed" and maintenance free.

There is a growing cottage industry in the GM LS community for after market tranny dipsticks. I believe VW has all but completely eliminated them too.
