    Low brake fluid usually means thin brake pads. When its warm enough, pull the front wheels and look at the pads. If worn, dont just push the pads back in the caliper like most any other car. Crack the bleeder screw on the caliper then push the pads back. Pushing the fluid back upstream can contaminate the accumulator and ABS system. Cracking open the bleeder should not require you to then bleed the system.
