Ditto to the dipstick method. Since it is so easy, I usually use the car's sensor and electronics but I don't trust it 100%. Sensors on these cars can fail, but dipstick level is pretty much fool proof. With both methods, I'd advise you check it when close to operating temperature. I'm told that after the engine sits for several hours, and with either method, you might get a false high reading.
