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

Also Chrysler. In that case, the complexity added by thermal expansion of the ATF requires a dipstick measurment, an ATF temperature measurement, and a graph that shows the proper fluid level vs temp line. This must have come about from shrinking the size of the pan for packaging and weight reductions.

My Charger has a fill tube with a simple screw-in plug. I check mine with an aftermarket dipstick after an all-night cool down so that the ATF temp is the same as the local air temp. It hasn't needed a top-up in 120,000 miles, so perhaps the "lifetime fill" claim isn't too far from reality.
