Question Brake Problem

Anyone having a problem with the brakes? I have a 2000 2.5RS. Problem occurs when the car is cold and you first hit the brakes. The
problem is you have none!! If you let up and
hit them again they are OK????

i don't know if mine's that extreme, but i know with every subaru i've driven dating back to 86, the brake pedal will be "soft" on the first push, always, but once you let up and push right back down, it's "normal"

How old is the car? I started getting glazing on my brakes at less than 10k miles with my MY98. I've had my rotors resurfaced (turned) a few times now to get rid of it. Try this (safely)...

Go out to a deserted wide road with no other traffic. Bring it up to about 55 MPH. Slam on the brakes and press as hard as you can, bringing it to a panic stop. If the ABS never kicks in and you don't skid, your rotors are glazed. Do this three of four more times. Eventually, you'll bake off the glaze and you'll start getting nice hard stops with the ABS kicking in. If the ABS never kicks in, bring the car back to the dealer and complain.

Trunkmonkey is here! There is no cone...
