    When using brake uphill or downhill, occasionally the 'brake fluid low' warning will popup. It can last for a while as long as the car still running on the slope. And will dismiss after the car return to flat road.
    Checked with tesla and they said the brake fluid level is appropriate, it is the design fault to make the sensor so sensitive to give false alarm......
    If any brother got the same issue?

    Not me and I am on pretty steep hills every day. I wonder if you are at the low end of the tolerance and a slight top off might solve it. Otherwise, you may have a finicky sensor.

    Also check for air/moisture in the system? Does the pedal ever have any mushy feeling?
