    I have 500 mi on my T4R . did not like how the brakes worked when I picked it up on purchasing. sales guy says that is normal that the front brakes grab and the front end will drop down. so I took his word and tried like hell to adjust to the odd working brakes. push down on pedal no brake then a little more too much brake very hard to stop evenly. So since I have bled many vehicles of many sizes some 20 times bigger than this vehicle . I decided to bleed the brakes since that was my experience with braking systems on how to correct this issue.

    well the right rear passenger side caliper was full of air , lots of bubbles in the bleeder hose shooting out .

    the driver side good NO air. took for test run normal braking only a slight dip ..

    so if the brakes are like this bleed them.
    I was gonna bring it in , but it took me 15 min. max to do this , why spend a day at dealership to have them break something else .

    now I can say I am happy with it .
