Default brake question (RSX)

Recently found out the brake fluid of my 02 RSX dropped to 1/2 only. And
the brake has to be pressed deeper than before, in order to stopping the
car.

Today I went to the dealer and had the 32000km service, afterwards I was
told the brakes are normal and acceptable. But that's not acceptable to
me.

So anyone know what's the problem my car's brake? Any input would be
appreicated. thankyou.

Unless you specifically told them about the fluid drop and change in pedal
height before they performed the service (which should have been just an oil
change), all they looked at in the service was pad thickness (and that is a
big maybe).

A sudden drop in fluid level and pedal height usually means somebody took a
trip with the parking brake engaged; the master cylinder or one of the wheel
cylinders is failing; or there could possibly be something going on with the
ABS.

I think you should go back and tell them specifically what has changed.
They usually don't cover brake pad wear or rotors under warranty. All the
other components would be warranty items if something is going bad.

the drop in fluid is compensating for the pad wear.
