Braking System Issues

Hi Guys! Well first off this is my introduction, and my first nag. I've had my Alpine SRT8 since December 27th and the vehicle had weird issue with the brakes, as I'm driving, I could brake and it would slow the vehicle down, but after coming to a complete stop the brake pedal would start falling and the car would start rolling forward, and I'd have to pump the brakes for it to stop again then it would do it again.

So I took it to the dealership and they replaced "master cylinder" and now the pedal isn't as aggressive as it was when I first bought it. The pedal engages further back then it used to. In comparison to say that I'm not crazy, it used to be just like my Charger when I bought it, and yes today I confirmed again that the pedal engages further back.

Tomorrow I plan on taking it back to the dealership because it doesn't stop as aggressively as it used to. Could it be they didn't bleed it right, because I remember that the thing just like my charger would on a tap of the brakes nearly launch me through the windshield.

Any advice guys?

Sounds logical that it may need some more 'bleeding'

Update: It's fixed, there was air in the brake lines, wasn't bled correctly.
