Pedal sinking slowly to the floor is typically symptomatic of a bad master cylinder. Spongy brakes due to air in the lines will pump up as opposed to sinking to the floor. If it happens all the time, make them drive it with you. While all the electronic monitoring systems are great, nothing replaces a good old fashioned test drive.
