Perhaps you have had a mechanic or repair shop try to sell you a brake fluid flush.  This is more than just a quick sale for a repair shop.  Modern vehicles need fresh, clean fluid to operate the Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and traction control systems in a millisecond.  That old fluid is black because the carbon is coming out of the rubber lines and seals in the system.  This can damage and clog calipers and most importantly, damage the ABS pump.  Anyone who has had to replace one can tell you it takes a whole lot of fluid flushes to even come close to the cost of a pump or the cost of the other components in the system.  Protect your investment today and check to see when your last brake flush was performed.  Most manufacturers, including European, Mercedes-Benz, and BMW recommend a brake flush every 2 years or 24,000 miles.  However, check your owner’s manual or call your repair shop for your specific make/model of vehicle.
