Brake Fluid

Most people do not realize that it is recommended for your brake fluid to be changed every year or two.  This is a very important part in the upkeep of your vehicle and vital in preventing unnecessary issues with your brake lines.  Over time, your brake fluid can change and absorb moisture causing your brake fluid to breakdown.  In turn, this can cause damage to your brake lines.  Just like your engine needs oil, so do your brakes!
