Extreme foot pressure is required to depress your brake pedal, get your brakes checked immediately. The underlying cause could be with the power brakes, or possibly restricted hydraulic lines, frozen calipers or wheel cylinders, or damaged brake linings. All of these problems demand immediate attention to ensure that your brakes continue to function effectively.
Brakes do not activate until the brake pedal is almost touching the floor. A quick check-up will soon identify the problem. You need your brakes to respond quickly in an emergency, so do not ignore this problem.
