Swapped out the fluid. 30K/3years. Easy job with a pressure bleeder. Took an hour. Good for 2 more years.

Great DYI project! Looks like you made a few mods to your brakes. What all did you do? I would like to at least switch to zinc coated to get rid of the rusted rotors.

Just Powerstop rotors up front and Centric Posi-Quiet pads to go with. Not really modified, just OEM+ I suppose. Needed rotors so gave these a try. They work as you would expect.

Do you know if the rotors are coated to prevent rust?
Try www.r1concepts.com. they only have the rear drilled and slotted rotors for the 2019 and up. Call them for more info. Ceramic pads for all 4 wheels from R1 Concepts. Almost no dust problems like the OEM pads. I got the front coated rotors on ebay last year. Got the coated rotors which still rust on the contact points. I did this job feb 2020. Pics attached.

Did you bleed down (with gravity)? Or apply a vacuum at the master cylinder?
Pressure at the master, not vacuum.

Finally broke down and bought a power bleeder too. It was always a pain getting someone to help, though my kids are getting to the sweet spot where they would actually like helping.

Pressure bleeder from the MC - super easy that way. Use about 20psi since the MC is new. Have to re-pump it a few times for the volume I used.
