    For me its almost like the brakes work better as you come to a stop until you are almost completely stopped, and they seem to hold less. Momentarily. And it doesn't bother me at all. I think it has something to do with the amount of vacuum on the brake booster. It may increase or reduce at different engine speeds or sudden stops/accels, etc. I haven't studied the power brake circuit. And the very well might be a "glitch" with the antilock system. Again, I haven't studied its setup or sequence of operation. My pedal does not "push back" though.

    I have felt my brakes do the same thing if i stop on the snow or the ice or gravel after a snow storm this might be what you are experiencing does the abs light come on when it does this?

    UPDATE: I recently tested this on icy roads and it does the same thing as on dry roads. Sure the no traction control symbol lights up and I can feel ABS but the pedal depresses it self like I was experiencing before. It stills does it to this day!

    BTW I don't recommend testing this again as I accidently slid through a red light...
