Car should not "use" transmission fluid, for it to be low it must have leaked somewhere.

on our old car (an 87 plymouth) the transmission fluid was also low by over 1 litre but there were no leaks. I noticed hard shifting and topping it up seemed to fix the problem (at the time I didn't know very much about cars). This was when the car was over 10 years old though. I never found out what happened with that litre of fluid. Oh well.

yeah, there should be no reason for you to be losing fluid, especially trans fluid.
