Default brakes

Hey guys. I have a 98 for a few years now. Havent had tons of time for it, also no place to keep it until this year when I bought a house with a garage and long driveway. Now that I'm finally getting started to use the car I want to address the brakes issue. They are few low /soft. Yes the pads and rotors are good and I have brake fluid. Are these cars known to have soft / low pedal?

Mine does, but I bled the system last week and it's a little better.

The brakes on the 96-98 GT's/v6's aren't the best in the world but a few things can be done to improve that.
-flush the brake fluid with new. you would be very surprised how often this is over looked.
-check broke hoses. Over time the material degrade and will become spongy. Unless tracking the car, replace with quality stock replacements.
These two things are a good start.

my 2010 has spongy brakes, no problem stopping, just feel like your pressing into memory foam
