Question Where is the steering fluid reservor?

got a 16 last week, open the hood for the first time today just to see where everything is. I can't seem to find the steering fluid reservoir. I even checked the owner's manual, and there is no mention of what type it is or anything about. Do we have a closed system and the fluid is fill for life? or a system doesn't even use fluid anymore?

I believe the RDX used electric assisted power steering. No fluid pump or reservoir.

Electric motors have replaced hydraulic systems on many cars.

that's great, one less thing to change, but probably more things can go wrong. Thanks!

Moving from hydraulic PS to electric PS was a major benefit when going from my '13 MDX to the '15 RDX. The MDX had this low-speed "growl" coming from the PS system that they didn't have a fix for, and the RDX (and the '14+ MDX) have the electric-assist PS and it works great. Same system on the wife's '12 TL SH-AWD and it also works great. Would much rather have this system rather than the traditional pump-based config...
