transmission fluid on 2004 Saturn Ion

My car messed up and I talked to a dealership and they said they would have to run a diagnostic and if it was the transmission. If the fluid was low they would replace it. Iasked if I could replace and they said no because it is very hard to get to and the fluid is very expensive. Is it really that expensive and can I change it myself?

Dex-CVT fluid is the special fluid for this transmission it is pricey. The check plug is under the transmission, so it is awkward to check.
