On another note, you may just not have properly bed-in your brakes (or burnishing) since it is a new vehicle.. yes brakes even need a proper brake in.
For more info check here on how to Bed-in brakes: http://www.essexparts.com/learning-c...rs/post/Bed-in

This should solve the problem about 90% of the time.

Thanks for the info Ject. I looked at the link, and I will do that soon, but the brakes grab well once the brake pedal is about 1/3rd to 1/2 way down, and it is just the "travel" of the brake pedal up until the point of engagement that I do not like.

Do people put steel/kevlar braided brake lines on cars like we did years ago with racing motorcycles?
