The brake pedal appears soft and depresses more than normal before engaging the brakes. I had the master cylinder changed and the brakes serviced but the pedal is still softer than I'm used to. What can the problem be?
What is wrong with my brakes? on 2007 Hyundai Azera
#1 & #2 are correct. Just one thing to add. IF yours does have drum brakes on the rear , and parking brake is self-adjusting , then try releasing (re-setting) the parking brake adjustment and with no tension on that , then adjust rear shoes to proper tolerance. THEN go back and set and release parking brake several times to set. HINT-- if ,while raised in air , the rear wheels spin real easy and don't stop for several turns BUT your parking brake works really good, then I might be on the right track. If that's not the case .............never mind. Good luck!

check for a leak if no leaks try bleeding the system
i am assuming that the brake system is properly bled ( meaning the master cylinder was bench bled, and all parts are put on properly and manually bled) the rear brake shoes may not be properly adjusted.
