My 2008 AWD is shifting hard into 3rd gear and it doesn't have a tranny dipstick. It feels like a jolt into the 3rd gear. The tranny cap says for dealer use only. What should I do?

There are many threads of how to check oil level of this design trans, and many of how to make a dipstick to be able to check it in a more normal way.
An 08 and thinking it may be low on trans oil is quite probable, but not knowing how long you have had this car and previous maint being done, I'd suggest that the pan be dropped and FILTER and oil changed. Also have the motor and trans mounts inspected, they are know to deteriorate and cause excessive/hard movement at shifts.
