E350SD brakes



Tech's
I recently received a card from the place where I usually get my
Chevy Cavlier serviced offering reduced price oil change, tire
rotation and balance, etc.

On the card was this statement:
"According to the Car Care Council, brake systems should be flushed
and brake fluid replaced every two [2] years. Brake fluid absorbs
moisture in the system and becomes acidic after two [2] years or
thirty [30,000] miles."
*Source: <www.carcare.org>

In fifty [50] years of driving, two [2] years of high school
[1950's] auto shop class, and five [5] years in the auto service
trades, [1960's], I'd never read this in any literature.
This is the first [1st] time I've ever heard anything about changing
brake fluid other than during a normal system rebuild, [shoes, pads,
drums, rotors, wheel cylinders, etc.].
Is there any validity to this idea and what does Ford have to say on
this subject.
I don't recall reading about this in the Ford liturature provided
with my E350SD SMB RB15.

Just because there is a website with "research" doesn't mean it's legitimate information.
