Question about 2005 Chevrolet Monte Carlo
If you live in an area of frequent high humidity, it might be a good idea to do it as a preventative measure since both brake and power steering fluids are hygroscopic and could absorb enough water to affect their performance.
Since most hydraulic fluids also suffer from exposure to heat over time, that might also weigh in the decision.
I probably would not personally opt for it since your mileage and the age of your car don't seem to justify it. These things always seem like the medical equivalent of tonsillectomies; a (related) doctor once told me that those were often not necessary and could be treated with medication unless chronic, but they were safe surgeries and helped pay the rent.
I do recall being told by an automatic transmission specialist that unless something failed, don't do anything to it. He said the changing and flushing could introduce contamination that otherwise wouldn't be there.
