RepairPal Expert Overview
Our Quick Take:
Brake fluid is kept in a reservoir under the hood. The reservoir has a cap to seal off the fluid, which keeps the fluid from getting any kind of contamination or debris into it. It is mandated that this cap have a brake fluid warning printed onto it. The reservoir caps equipped with this vehicle are missing part of the required warning, and therefore must be replaced.
