Does anyone know the correct brake fluid to use for 2013 Passion? I know they recommend taking to a Smartdealer but I don't have the money to do that. My light has been coming on intermittently for awhile now and now I can smell a burning smell. I know... I know; 'How can someone own a Smart be so dumb?!馃槖 I am a bad car owner that would really appreciate an answer to this.馃檹 Thank you!

Dot 4 or 5.1 is fine as mentioned. Do not make a mistake and use Dot 5.

Thank you I really appreciate it!
You know I noticed you have two Electric Vehicles and mine is gas. Does that make any difference to the brake fluid. I wouldn't think so but I did select the 451 forum to post my question and maybe it is the wrong forum for my car. Silly question but I thought it might be worth asking.

Nope - no difference and nothing wrong with being extra careful. I just don't use the same oil and filter that you do. :)
