Question about 2003 Chevrolet Equinox
My wife has a 2005 Chevrolet Equinox with approx. 37K. About a week or two ago I drove the vehicle and noticed something odd. On occasion, normally under light to moderate braking the pedal slowly depresses all the way to the floor. The vehicle has not failed to stop as of today. I took it back to the service department on 01/14/2008 and of course the brakes worked fine according to them. Drove the car to work today and while traveling from lunch, the pedal went to the floor on 3 separate occasions. Pedal feels like it’s building pressure as it should up to ¼ or ½ pedal and then slowly continues to depress. As stated above, this only happens on occasion
If you have no air in the system, then the Master cylinder is leaking (inside) which means you have to replace it. This is not normal to any car when the pedal goes to the floor.

My wife's 2005 Equinox got progressively worse "brake travel" over a 2 week period recently. My service guy checked the lines and found no leaks or problems. He determined that the master brake cylinder had gone bad and needed to be replaced... $300 later, we haven't had the problem again.

You dealership lied that is not common with any car.
Theirs definetly something wrong you are losing pressure somewhere or you have air in the brake system.
Check your brake lines for any evidence of fluid spraying around that area.

My 03 trailblazer does the same thing and the service dept. told me that it was normal for this model to do that, it has never failed to stop but if your sitting at a red light you can feel the peddle go down to almost the floor but it stops fine and it has done this since day 1 and they say thats normal on the trailblazer.
