I could understand a mileage quota but years to me seems odd instead it should depend upon the mileage driven.
I did a little reading and learned a lot. Apparently the enemy of brake fluid is time. DOT 3 & 4 (we have DOT 4) absorbs water over time and this has two downsides
1) Lowers the boiling point of the fluid which can cause the fluid to vaporize just when you need it most
2) Causes corrosion or the parts that the fluid comes in contact with.
So the real question is how much water your brake fluid has in it. Apparently there are test strips available that tell you when to change, so I'm off to the auto parts store.
