Excellent advice! After reading this, I checked my owner's manual for the torque spec and sure enough the owner's manual states the same thing that you say. When I checked the torque, some were so tight I thought I'd break the wheel bolts trying to loosen them and others backed off easily. I will be torqueing the bolts from now on every time I have my tires rotated and balanced.

I checked the brakes of some other vehicles with anti-lock brakes and found that they do the same thing. The anti-lock brakes stop the vehicle by modulating the brakes on and off very rapidly. What if they are staying in the off mode and bypassing the fluid? BTW, my brakes will still go to the floor if I apply constant pressure to them when the vehicle is running. If the vehicle is off however, the brakes are firm and will not go to the floor. We need a mechanic to explain that.
