2012 has a drain plug and a dipstick, simple as changing oil! I've never used asian fluid but I used maxlife in my old soul (2011) and it never gave me any trouble in the 180k miles I owed it!
Yes the drain was indeed very easy but fill in was a PITA. I spilled quite a bit of ATF but with patience I managed to fill it in. Next time I may use MaxLife although I had a bad experience with it when I used it in my old VW a few years back.

OK now I see that these hose are buried under the air filter housing. I did not remove the housing as I had access to the fill plug. But good to know for next time (y)
