Does anyone know how much brake fluid these cars take? I will be changing my fluid soon, and it's on sale right now :D

It's also not listed in my owner's manual.

Thanks!

Yeah, that's the first thing I did. The capacity isn't listed, only that DOT3 is recommended.

I've read that a 32oz bottle will refill a brake system and give you enough to bleed the system aswell.

Hope this helps!

I used over one (maybe two I don't remember) big jug of brake fluid when i sucked out the old & put new in. I would buy two big ones for sure.

I would step up to DOT4 when replacing, it will increase the boiling point, Castro makes a good one and easy to find.

I got a hand-pump vaccuum tester/bleeder I used. Makes doing it without a helper easier. Used a 32-oz jug and got it done. Seemed to work fine. Also went with DOT4.
