Unhappy 2004 PT Cruiser Brake problems

My cruiser brake pedal started travelling to floor, have had new front and rear pads and discs replaced, and on dealer instruction have just installed a new master cylinder. Calipers retracting properly but pedal still travelling to floor and no brakes. HELLLLLLPPPPPPP!

Sounds like the dealer didn't bleed the system properly. Call them up, tell them your problem and have it towed back at their expense.

In my few years of working in a shop, I would have to say that they left some air in ur system. (not the correct amount of bleeding of the fluid) air bubbles travel fast in those little lines...take it back like crewzin said and have them take a test drive with u. Have them re-bleed the whole system and u should be in good shape.
