JA: Are you fixing your PT Cruiser yourself? What have you tried so far?

They picked up the car and checked everything out,rebleeding braker. They found 1 of new calipers bad. They installed another new caliper and said everything is now ok. They drove the car 40 miles to my house. I paid $502.65 for brake work they did, but I still have soft brake pedal. They said this is normal, but it wasn't that soft before.
