2013 transmission fluid level/change??

2013 5 speed (WA580):

At what point (mileage) did y'all have the fluid changed? Any of you ever find your fluid was low? I see the dipstick is capped and says "for dealer use only." I am curious as to what the level is because of two reasons:

Vehicle often experiences a sluggish "lag" when shifting from 1 to 2. If you really give it a lot of gas it seems to hold the shift until later, and it performs better. But if you don't (in traffic), there is a lag.

Downshifting (gears falling from 5-4-3-2-1), especially when braking---you can feel each gear change. Happens quickly, but you can feel it and definitely notice it. Particularly 3-2-1.

Can low fluid cause this? or (asking wa580 owners) is this feeling normal and to be expected? it is just not smooth at all going down through the gears. braking of course makes all of this happen more quickly--and you really feel the times it is changing gears, going down.
