Am I missing something?
I believe it says every two years. Just because the fluid has allegedly changed color is no reason to change. If you GC has seen hard use ie towing or has been in very humid environment then changing more frequently maybe in option.
Depending on how hard the vehicle is used brake fluid can be changed as often as before a track weekend or between track sessions. Again depends on how hard the brakes were used etc.
Dont know the wet boiling point of the OEM brake fluid in our GCs??? For severe use I would recommend ATE Blue and Gold. Or even good ole Castrol. No need for high buck fluids. Wet boiling point is the most important for brake fluid. Dont use silicon brake fluid ever in your GC. Also avoid some racing brake fluids because they are very hydroscopic ie attract water and are made to be changed before every race.
