2007 sportage 70000KM Brakes feel a little spongy especially

Customer Question

2007 sportage 70000KM Brakes feel a little spongy especially in reverse. Pads about 1/2 worn and rotors are smooth. I bled the rear. Vehicle has sat for the last year. I can hear a rumble type noise when I apply the brakes a low speed ( in driveway).
JA: Have you tried "bleeding the brakes" to get any air out of the line?
Customer: I bled the rear only. No change. They seemed to respond better after i drove on a gravel road and activated the ABS system a few times. Buddy has a similar Kia and his brakes are more responsive.
JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: It could be the master cylinder. I have booked a brake inspection at the local Kia dealership for this Monday.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: Other than the vehicle has been siting idle for the past year.
