    Quick question about brake fluid

    I was under the hood of my 2011 WRX just getting more acquainted with the platform when i noticed what looks like 2 brake fluid reservoirs is this right or am I confused. Also does the turbo have its own coolant reservoir?

    Are you thinking about the brake fluid reservoir and the clutch fluid reservoir?

    Yes I didn't even think of that I just saw that they both were DOT 3 and I didn't even think of the clutch thank you. Is fluid for the clutch the same as the brake fluid, and is there any negatives in stepping up the DOT recommendations.

    One is brake, one is clutch. You cna use dot 4 as well. Just look at the bottle to make sure they are compatable.And yes they both use brake fluid.
