Brake/Clutch* Fluid

Specified fluid:
Brake Fluid with DOT 3 or DOT 4

Brake fluid marked DOT 5 is not compatible with your vehicle's braking system and can cause extensive damage.

We recommend using the specified brake fluid. If the specified brake fluid is not available, you should use only DOT 3 or DOT 4 fluid from a sealed container as a temporary replacement.

If the brake fluid level is at or below the MIN mark, have a dealer inspect the vehicle for leaks or worn brake pads as soon as possible.

Checking the Brake Fluid

The fluid level should be between the MIN and MAX marks on the side of the reservoir.

Manual transmission models
The brake fluid reservoir is also used for your vehicle’s clutch fluid. As long as you keep the brake fluid level as instructed above, there is no need for checking the clutch fluid level.

* Not available on all models
