Brake problem with brand new 2012 GT

I have to go in to the dealer for some warranty work on a clunky front suspension, and I also have a problem with my brake pedal. It is very spongy and doesn't return after I lift off right away. Anyone else with this problem? 700kms (I know, nothing) on the clock.

I have a 12 GT with 1k miles on the clock and I feel like my brake pedal is too soft as well. Sitting at a light, it will not drop to the floor but the travel seems too long before it completely stops. I was going to test another one on a dealer lot to see if it my expectations or actuality. Just wanted to avoid the "it is normal" routine.

Checking to see if you had any updates. I have an appt. tomorrow morning. I checked my brake fluid and it is over the max line. It has begun to leak out of the reservoir at a pretty good pace.
