Default A little puzzled under the hood

Hi, I recently purchased a 2016 Lexus nx f sport and was in a huge transition coming from an 2004 Acura TSX . My family has been a Honda type for years now and everything is mostly a diy oil and coolant changing as it was self explanatory. After I purchased the Lexus, I was puzzled as under the hood is something totally different than the cars I've had in the past. Power steering fluid is gone as I was told that it is electric. Windshield wiper fluid can be done by ourselves, but the two things I don't get are the two pink liquid containers. I was told by Lexus not to touch them ever because it doesn't need to be serviced. My question it, what are those and what happens if the liquid gets least? Can it be changed by ourselves than hint to go to the dealer to do it? What else service to I need to do periodically other than oil change? I was told that it is located in a difficult position that only the dear ship shop can change for you. I want to know what I can do by myself without me going to the dealer and where will each of these located? Thanks and looking forward to your response.

Try this thread for the oil change. I'll have to look under the hood for the two pink fluids, I'm sure one is engine coolant, not sure on the other. They can be serviced if needed by the owner.

One is engine coolant. The other is turbo intercooler coolant.

Just like other coolant reservoirs in newish cars, they never need to be topped off by the end-user. If you need to, there is serious need for a dealer visit as you have a leak.

Also, I wouldn't recommend diy servicing of this car at this stage, because if you miss the appointed service intervals, your warranty is screwed.

Not quite the case in N. America provided you show evidence the car was maintained outside of Lexus.

First two services (oil changes) are included on mine, not on yours?

The first two services (at 5k and 10K) are free. Only the 10K service includes an oil change.
