Did Kia used the worst plastics ever that let no light through so you can actually read the fluid levels? I can't figure out for the life of me what is my coolant or brake reservoir levels. Does the dealership uses special tools to check the level to make sure they are proper? (or do they even check?)

See pictures. I tried shining the light in different ways to try and figure out but nothing.

Shining the light from the side is the trick. (y)
I usually put a small flashlight up against the reservoir to light up the fluid inside to see where it is.

2010 thru 2013 1st gen Kia Forte Koups & sedans.

Just Sunlight, no flash. Low light & at night is hard to view.
Mine is a 2015, hence why I posted into the 2014+. Looks like the previous generation was easier to see through. In this one it's a pita.

I'll try shining the light from the side or inside and see what I can see. Thanks
