Sometimes the tranny shifts hard.  We don't see a dipstick for the tranny. It is a 4 motion sedan vehicle.

Best to have a garage check it out. The car has to be in the air so you can get under it, up to operating temperature and level to check the fluid level. Shifting hard can be other issues beside just old fluid.

Tom is correct. Transmission fluid has to be checked by a shop that has the proper equipment and knowledge of European cars.
