      Post Brake Flush at 50k miles

      First post here! I got my 2017 S90 T5 with around 37k miles CPO. And now I am at around 50k and decided to do the brake flush since I skipped the 40k service interval. After, I feel like the brake pedal has a lot of travel in it now. I brought it to the service managerís attention as soon as I drive away and he brought it to the mechanic and assured me the he re bled it and there is no air in the system. I called today and he told me that these cars get softer brakes post flush. Just wanting some opinions here.

      Thanks.

      Sounds like BS brake pedal should feel the same or better after a proper fluid flush!

      After some time I can agree that I have either gotten used to it or it has gotten better lol.

      Check the brake fluid level near the support battery area. You might need to adjust it a bit.

      My dealer did the 40k service a couple of months ago, along with the brake fluid flush, and pedal feels just the same, since day one. I'd double check the level, as suggested by @Nerd23
