incidentally, a car should never "use" any power steering fluid or brake fluid. The brake fluid will get a little lower over time because as the brake pads wear, the pistons are farther out and so the level will be lower in the resevior... I never add any unless it is actually under the low mark because if you top it off and then replace the brake pads, you're going to have too much fluid which will spill everywhere (hopefully this is making sense...)- both are hydraulic fluid which likes to eat away painted surfaces.

But if either is low (especially power steering) then you probably have a leak.
