Is this only on the 2008 model as I have not experienced this with my 2007?

I have the spongy brake problem and have to agressively slam on the brakes to get it to stop. Mine is a 2008 redline. I'm also concerned. We should file a complaint with the National Highway and Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
I recall someone else posting about this previously but I don't recall if it was about a 2007 or a 2008 or even a RL versus a base SKY. But there is another thread on here about someone backout out of their driveway and having braking issues at startup, etc.

That would of ruin my day also Judi! Sorry about the dent hope its an easy fix. I have no problems with mine but its a 07, maybe we need a poll done on this to see just how bad the problem really is? I agree the cars having a leaking differential or stalling is NOT a safety issue this spongy brakes is a ISSUE! Just earlier in the week I saw were Chrysler has a recall on the Nitro's for a similar brake problem.

From what I read, it looks like a problem with the 2008's. See "mariposa916 - ABS Question" I would paste it here but I don't know how. I posted a new thread because I want to make sure EVERYONE with 2008's dosen't do what I did and think that it just needs to get broke in and the problem should go away. It appears that's not gonna happen. Also, after reading several responses I figured it was one of those things I was just going to have to live with but you can't always be focusing on things like this. One of those days your going to forget like I did and WHAM! Thankfully it was in my driveway and no one got hurt. Well almost no one, I've been sick about it all day. That's a $500. deductible I hadn't planned to spend.
2008 Red Line
My 08 Sky Redline does this as well. I had a older model SWII from 1995 that also did the same thing. I am betting it is considered normal. Just as my 05 Hummer H2 Loses power steering in parking lot manuvers. Thay replaced entire steering setup, pump, hoses box and all and no change. and the belt is not slipping either. Some vehicles have inherent Quirks. I can live with it though.
