For the past year or so, the brake pedal was lower than normal, but
the brakes worked fine. If you tap the pedal, it works at its regular height.
I did a brake booster test, but it was fine. Suspecting it could be the
master cylinder, I took it to Villa Automotive in Burnaby to do some
testing and they replaced the master cylinder. This did not fix the problem.

I was in the hospital, so my dad took Betty to his mechanic. Minit-Tune
& Brake in Port Kells, where they diagnosed and replaced a bad ABS
module replaced. They also replaced a worn tie rod and did an alignment.
