I find the braking system benefits from a good strip down, clean and lube after a British winter (Especially up here in the scottish highlands)
All pretty standard maintenance common to many other cars like greasing sliders and pad contact points.
Where the parking brake cable passes through the backplate is worthy of special attention though, worth detaching cable from shoes and getting some grease into the alloy guide by working the cable to and fro as they can seize solid in there and are hundreds to replace.

Other than that, change the brake fluid, coolant and gear oil once in a while and these cars just keep on going ( 126k miles on my 2014 ! )
