    Question Is this behaviour caused by brake assist?

    Hi everyone,

    If I brake hard, the car eventually comes to a stop (no surprises here ). If I maintain the pressure on the brake pedal after the car has stopped, sometime (maybe 20 seconds) later the pedal will suddenly sink a bit further.

    Is this the brake assist releasing the extra pressure it applied?

    Thanks.

    I think it might be something to do with the ABS, as my vectra b would do that, but it does not have emergency brake assist, mind you some one will correct me if I am wrong, I don,t think there is anything wrong with your brakes, as it does this.
