    confused vectra cdti 150 brake issue

    I was driving to work this morning about half way into the journey pressed the brake pedal and nothing- 5hit myself and pressed again the and the brakes worked thankfully. They are now working again but feel spongy. Any ideas? Pads and discs have only done around 10k.....

    not good matey.
    I would check the brake fluid level first.
    But, you have to go through the system and check every component to find the fault. If the pedal went to the floor and the fluid level is ok I would initially suspect :
    1) Servo leak
    2) Master cylinder fault.
    3 Air in the System.
    Did any warning lights come up on the dash?
    When were the brakes checked last?
    when was the Brake fluid last changed? Its supposed to be every 2 years.
    I wouldn't continue to drive your Vec till its sorted as the boys in blue take a dim view of defective brakes...
    Cheers
