Interesting, I suppose what you are saying is that brake fluid is a lifetime fluid? Playing the devil's advocate, isn't Lifetime generally described as 10 years so it should be changed at some point?
Don't get me wrong, I don't want to do unneeded work if I don't have to. Brakes feels fine, only have 29K miles on the ODO so pretty sure the pads are fine. Just seems like a long-time for a fluid that absorbs water.
I guess I am struggling with what changed over the past couple years, our 2006 Honda Odyssey Owners Manual states to change every 3 years - yet no mention of bleeding brakes on 2007 Dodge RAM, 2012 Ford Mustang, 2017 Jeep Wrangler.
To add to it, seems like Mercedes still calls for "Brake Fluid Exchange" every 2 years/20K miles
And even weirder
2015 GMC - Every 150K or 10 years

2016 GM - Every 3 years

2017 Chevrolet - No mention in the Maintenance Interval but Owners Manual says every 5 years

Regardless, whole thing gives me a headache
