The bad news: yesterday it lost more than 1 liter of coolant

The good news: after topping it up I turned on the engine and revved it up for about a minute. Then I looked under the car and saw water dripping.

Its leaking water to the outside. :thumbup: :clap:

I now have a weekend project.

It was the rubber hose from the reservoir to the engine just beside the oil filter. The collateral damage of 5 years of oil filter changes. The mechanics at Hyundai probably thought the hose is indestructible, pushing it aside when changing the filter. Eventually the stress point developed a hole. Just like what happens the the charging cable of your favorite gadget.

Drove it to the nearest auto supply. They didn't have a matching hose. We ended up cutting off an inch or so at one end of the hose to discard the damaged part. It should last a few more years, plenty of time to buy the correct replacement.

Saw this while replacing front brake pads:

That's the power steering boot. Both sides are like that, covered in oily dust.

Should I be alarmed? Is there anything that needs replacing?

I don't think I'm losing power steering fluid. It is still above the minimum level. Last top-up is at least 8 months ago.

that should be filled with grease Joey. sugget you clean it lang muna. grease do tend to accumulate dirt din kasi and with wear it heats to a point that it does liquify (but very minilaml lang) and will go out of the rubber boot when it flexes.
