Visually inspect your brake fluid once or twice a year. Brake fluid should be clear or translucent. If the fluid is rust-colored, moisture might have gotten in and a flush might be warranted. If your brake fluid is black or has a burnt smell, your braking system likely has a problem that requires attention, not just a flush. If it is below the recommended level, it might have a leak.
