Toyota and Lexus have their own individual recommendations for brake fluid replacement – Toyota has no set interval while Lexus recommends replacing the fluid every 30,000 miles (it is required with each 30,000 mile Lexus maintenance service).
Your brake fluid is the only thing connecting your pedal to the brakes at the wheels, and keeping the brake fluid in good shape is crucial to maintain your vehicle safety. If you don’t remember the last time you’ve had your brake fluid changed, CARspec is happy to inspect your brake fluid condition at no cost as part of a general brake inspection. We look for:
- Particulates or black buildup in the master brake cylinder
- Abnormal fluid color or texture (too dark or thick)
- Leaks from the master cylinder, lines, calipers or wheel cylinders
- Test the brake fluid for moisture content and boiling protection
If you do require brake fluid replacement, CARspec is fully equipped to change the brake fluid on all Toyota and Lexus models, including specialized braking systems like on the Prius or other Toyota and Lexus hybrids. As Minneapolis, Minnesota’s independent Toyota and Lexus specialized repair shop we’re always happy to take a look, so give us a call to make an appointment today!
