I am not 100 % sure but i think your vehicle has electric power steering especially if you cannot find a reservoir to top up,the power steering if electric relys on signals from the vehicle speed sensor and torque sensor on column which determines the amount of assisting power to the steering,you may have to get the vehicle put on a scan tool to check this out.Also are your tyre pressures o.k
