Leaky caliper

Just a week ago I was thinking how reliable my 2013 Volt was. Then on Tuesday, I got a low brake fluid warning light. Checking under the hood, I was able to confirm the fluid was low. I was able to get to the dealer that same day. They confirmed a leaky caliper and refilled the reservoir. The new caliper is at the dealer and will be replaced tomorrow.
Anyone else have a leaky caliper?

We will continue to need hydraulic brakes because regenerative braking is too weak at low speeds, so a mechanical means will complete the speed reduction. The best we can do is to coast as much as possible and use regenerative braking until the EV stops completely as in the new 2017 Chevy Bolt EV.
