Brake issues

My car sat idle for about 18 months. Now that it is back on the road the brakes are extremely low (for lack of a more technical term). They were replaced right before the car came off the road. Could the brake lines need to be bled? The car takes a long time to stop but does. There is no noise or fluid leakage that is visible. No other issues other than this. Can anyone offer a suggestion or help? Thank you:)

Re: Brake issues

Checking the brake fluid level and condition would be the first thing to do. Bleeding the brake system would be recommended.

Re: Brake issues

Also, especially in the salt-states, check to be sure all calipers and pads are free. The caliper pins can freeze up, and the pads get frozen in the caliper brackets due to rust (especially the rear calipers if equipped). This will produce a low pedal due the the extra caliper piston travel needed to apply the brakes.
