Some people complain about hearing chirping noise when they press the brake pedal or come to a stop. That noise is usually made by one of the valves that is not opening or closing properly. Sometimes you can fix the problem by completely flushing the brake system (doesn’t work every time though).
Even if your car isn’t making a chirping noise it is a good idea to change the fluid after 100,000 miles. The brake system on a Toyota Prius or other hybrid, however, is very different from what we are used to, which is why it is important to take your hybrid to a specialist like Exclusively Hybrid to perform a brake system flush for you.
As you can imagine changing the brake fluid from all the lines is not as easy as it is in most non-hybrid cars; it does require the use of a scan tool.
