2004 Pontiac Vibe Question: Braking problems

Despite several trips to my dealer, I continue to have problems with my brakes. Frequently, when I apply the brakes they do not release even though I have removed my foot from the brake. Occasionally the brakes go to the floor with no stopping or slowing. -
Answer 1
If you car is out of warranty and the dealer can't fix this problem, I'd stop taking it there and find a quality independent shop in your area. Don't let anyone charge you for a repair unless your complaint has been fixed. -
Answer 2
Check the flexible brake line going into the caliper or brake cylinder; They've been know to have- "INTERIOR tubes that can not be seen that weaken and restrict the flow back. replacing the brake-lines is the answer!" -
