I think my problems are bigger than pads. The pedal has started going all the way to the floor, and s a little spongy with the engine off. I took it into the garage who said there was no leak. They then keep telling me new (official) pads will fix the problem. Now they tell me that Kia brakes are just like that, and maybe I should upgrade the master cylinder. But that doesn't make sense. The car has ABS, but that rarely kicks in when I try it because the pedal hits the floor and the car rolls to a stop slowly. If there's no leak in the system, then the master cylinder must be playing up. How do the brakes feel on your KIA? I worried the malaysians may have downgraded the master cylinder - is there a way I can tell?
