Did you check your transmission fluid levels?

You shouldn't of listened to the dealer. Your transmission fluid level shouldn't be that low on a car with 55k miles. Check it anyway and see what level is at, and make sure there is no leaks in the transmission.

JBronski,your right.Took it in for oil change and convinced mechanic it wasn't hard to check once in the air. 3 quarts later found small leak at lines going into rad. Wonder It didn't destroy tranny. Good news gas mileage went from 12 to 22mpg.Garage wants $250 to fix lines. Could wait for summer DIY project

How fast is the leak? Depending on how much you drive it and how fast its leaking you may need to do it sooner. If the leak is slow, it can probably wait.
