    I had noticed the same shit , never really figured it out until I was comming of an exit ramp doin 70ish and the pedal went right to the floor. kinda scarey. You'll want to get that fixed before it finally desides to spew brake fluid if it does it will eventually run down the inside of your firewall and under your carpet in your car. what a fucking mess.

    heres a way to test if your MS is working. Turn the car off, pump brakes 3-5 times, then apply constant pressure. If it sinks, then your MS is shot.
