Since you are asking about brake failure due to
I don't think it would necessarily result in total
brake failure anyway. Fluid, with or without
water, is still an incompressible liquid that will
operate your hydraulic systems.
But water boils at a lower temperature than brake
fluid and increased water content can therefore
result in the fluid boiling during spirited
braking. If you drive fast on twisty or hilly
roads then brake fade is not at all uncommon,
and is worsened by having old fluid in the system.
Brakes still work, just not as well.
My daughter's modern car (2005 model) has a full
brake fluid change (synthetic) as a standard
service item every 2 years, which I do think is
excessive, but they are after her money!
It sounds like a good idea, I guess.
It would be interesting to poll the groups to see
if anyone has ever had a
brake failure due to fluid.
