it sounds like you need to bleed the brake lines. it's a two person job, and at least one has to know how to do this. if not you'll have to take it to a brake shop. it also could be a bad brake booster, but your car isn't that old so i don't think it's that.

First look for obvious leaks under the vehicle, especially the inside area of each wheel... If you see fluid, you have either a blown cylinder seal or a bad line (check the rubber hoses to the front and back brakes too) Repair the offending part and bleed the air out of the system... (remember to clean pads or shoes if they have fluid on them)... If you see no hint of leakage anywhere, then suspect the master cylinder... if you remove the master cylinder, check and make sure that it didn't leak fluid into the brake booster diaphragm (Brake fluid will destroy the booster)... as in any repair when you open the system (lose fluid), you will need to bleed out the air to restore function... hope this helps...;-)

More info is needed but air in the system will cause this. No insult intended but the fluid went somewhere.How low are the pads.

do u have the antilock brake bleeding tool? if not you will need to have the dealer bleed the brakes, the ABS control valve must be electricaly held open to bleed the brakes there of course is a special tool for this.

hi from uk from the symtoms you clearly describe this souns very much like your problem is the brake mater cylinder is faulty this is to say that as it is what is called dual master cyl it operates the front brakes on one piston and the rear brakes on the second piston within the master cyl so if the front piston fails(fluid passes the piston seal and returns to reservoir ) hence no leak ? of fluid externally then pedal travels further and operates 2nd piston for rear brakes and eventually brakes applied ? this is common occurance and mainly on older models/high milage/ not flushing/bleeding fluid annually as recommended intervals ? brake fluid is subjected to heat transfer from pads /shoes then wheel cylinders resulting that fluid becomes compressable resulting in spongy pedal/increase in travel also fluid also absorbs moisture over time with equel symptoms as described above ? unfortunatly nowadays it is difficult to obtain new seals/repair kits to recondition cylinders so you have to replace here in uk unlike years ago you could try bleeding/flushing brake system all cyl's to see if it improves brakes ? you will see dirty/burned fluid on the 1st bleed strokes ? hope you understand all above ? have tried to explain simply? and hope this helps ? if you req more help/info by all means come back ? best wishes from n/west uk
