Soft brakes

Asked by Oct 01, 2010 at 09:14 AM about the 2002 Acura MDX AWD Touring

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

The brakes on this vehicle are soft. At the last oil change the tech said the pads were in good shape and I have checked the fluid level and even drained brake fluid through each rotor in the appropiate manner. Any thoughts on the why they would be soft?

1 Answer

985

if the fluid is good and they're no air bubbles in the lines, its probably in the master cylinder or booster
