No corrosive DOT3 here, been there, done that, suffered the consequences. Nearly every Pontiac I work on has had new CNC bent lines or hand bent lines installed, & yes we run DOT 5. Besides leaking brake fluid wiping out brake booster plating & underhood detailing, Ive found over the years, the average Pontiac guy will next to NEVER flush what was at one time, fresh DOT3 fluid from their Pontiac's brake lines & replace it with fresh DOT3. Same average Pontiac guy will b!tch & moan about how bad the late '70's-early 80's rear disc calipers were, I've run several such setups with no problem. Neglect to proper fluid maintainence is what builds up corrosion & causes problems.
