I had a small leak in my CVT Transmission line. Is there anyway to check the fluid level to make sure I didn't lose too much fluid? 2016 Outback Limited 2.5L

Thanks in advance

There is no dipstick, but there is a procedure in the service manual to check fluid level. The procedure involves certain temperatures and crawling under the vehicle. With a 2016, unless you drive A LOT, you should still have some warranty coverage, they should have verified fluid level after repairing the leak.

Who repaired the leak? If the dealer, then the fluid should be OK since they'd check it.
If you did, then makes sense to check the level. It is kind of a pain in the B to do though unless you have a lift. I'd just have the dealer check and top off, especially in warranty.
