No, it’s not normal. And spongy brakes are definitely not a good sign. A very low or spongy pedal means there’s likely air in the hydraulic lines of your car’s brake system. This creates low hydraulic pressure. If the hydraulic pressure gets too low, your car’s brake pads or shoes may no longer be able to apply enough force and friction to safely stop your car. An immediate inspection of your car’s brake system is strongly advised – get in touch with your local Auto Masters.
