    i would never run a DOT 5 brake fluid way to much work, that brake fluid as awesome as it it, it needs to be changed out very very often! as it is silicone based and very corrosive, I have herd ton of great thing about the RBF600 and i would just generally stick with that as well!

    Just some info..
    you can't use dot5 in your car, dot5 doesn't work with abs..
    stick with whatever GM gives you.... should say on the cap anyways.. most likle dot3 or 4...
    Just flush it out every 2 years MAX

    Unless you are racing a verano lol..... you do not need RBF600.. or anything similar

    It's not one of those things where you would ever feel or notice the difference

    Im not much of a gear head so usually I stick with fluid I get from the dealership. My local Buick dealership is nice enough that if/when I need a top up on specific fluids, they'll do it. SO yea i never touch that stuff.

    Use the recommended DOT 3 Hydraulic Brake Fluid (GM Part No. 88862806, in Canada 88862807) from a tightly sealed container and avoid getting the fluid on anything that is painted. If you do spill, wash it off with plenty of water.

    As the brake pads wear, the fluid level will go down slightly. That condition is normal, and it does not require you to add brake fluid.

    brake fluid loves paint, had some bad experience with that once, thankfully it was on a fender I was able to swap out easily
