If you hit the brakes they work but if you push slow they will go to the floor.

You are losing either the brake booster or the master cylinder. By pushing the pedal hard, you are pumping pressure into the system. You need to get it off the road and to a shop before they go out completely? Consider having it towed.

You may have three seperate issues. First, could be a brake caliper sticking. Second, the master cylinder is bad.

Finally, Number three...and most likely, your brake pads are worn out, completely.

Have your brakes inspected by a qualified individual. Hope this helps.

Hi ! I was on the road and between driving the car lost the brake pressure ! hope ste speed was slow , but hit the car front of me. When the engine stopped the brake feel good when push few times , but the...

most common problems will lies in the master cyclinder become faulty. If the pressure feel spoongy or when you press the pedle all the way to the floor and no brakes or with little brakes, it will be your master cyclinder unit; sometime if you have to pump the brake couple of time to get the brake to work. replace the master cyclinder, fairly cheap. if you do it your self make sure you bleed it properly.
