The shop would have removed some fluid prior to pushing the pistons back. However, they should have topped it up after the job was done....just want to top up as the fluid seems to be below max mark in reservoir, even after getting new pads all around.
Of course a Honda dealer is going to say to use Honda fluids. No need to do so howeverWhen we had the brake master cylinder repair under warranty extension done @ 60k mi on our 06, they said only use Honda brake fluid. Prior to that we had a flush using DOT3 at a indy shop. Not sure if there’s any truth to that statement.

After the brake job i felt the brakes are not as responsive as it was before. Have to push rhe pedal a little further. Thought it might be because of low fluid. Thats why first thing i wanted to try was top up the fluid.Being below the max mark is not an issue. Just keep it between min and max. Better to leave it alone.
Nope. Didnt open the lines or try to bleed brakes. Just replaced pads and rotors.First, you might have air in your brake lines. Did you open the brake lines? If not, there should not be air in system.
What type of pads did you use, as some of the more 'sporty' pads, don't feel good until they get hot. This is not a good thing for normal driving.
