In this thread yrwei52 commented on Aug 25 that it is not normal to have a brake pedal that goes all the way to its mechanical stop when fully depressed with the engine running (car parked). I had asked about this since my pedal does that. Since then I've checked several late model cars whenever relatives or friends visit and so far every one I've tried allows the pedal to go to the stop when the engine is running. All of these cars seem to have normal brake performance when driving. Would anyone like to try this and comment?
