pressure accumulator is leaking.  if this happens only when you let the
car sit for a week it is ok... if it happens everyday you'd need a new
one.  one of the common trouble spots of the 5000 series cars. 

if the leak worsens, then you'll eventually lose all power assistance for
the brakes.  not good.

happened to my car, but ext. warranty took care of it.
