Touchy brakes, spongy cornering

I bought an 09 with 26k on it. Brakes were touchy from the start but thought they would wear-in.
No such luck. Minimal foot pressure feels like you've slammed on the brakes. Had dealer check them out. After he test drove it, said that's normal. If it is don't know how they keep selling the model.
Other complaint is extreme body roll in corners. Maybe it's just lack of seat support.
Really liked the looks and power of the car but could not live with brakes and cornering. Sold it after six months.
Style. Back seat fold-down. Decent stereo. Good MPG. Straight ahead power
Fix the brakes, for Pete's sakes. Buffer suspension.
