Honda Fit: Brake and Clutch Fluid

Check the brake fluid level in the reservoirs monthly.

Replace the brake fluid according to the time recommendation in the maintenance minder schedule.

Always use Honda Heavy Duty Brake Fluid DOT 3. If it is not available, you should use only DOT 3 or DOT 4 fluid, from a sealed container, as a temporary replacement.

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