this electric system is more likely to have total failure than the conventional vacc system...its not reliable....hydraulic sys just dont fail just like that they usually give signs lots of it....and the repair cost is minimal.
this electric system is total bs....common sense will tell u this.

I've only just bought my NM Paj, I wonder if this recall applies to non-original owners?

Hmmm, just contacted MMA with my Vin. They say my car doesn't apply and is OK....so why are the brakes so spongy? I'll flush and bleed them and see what happens.

Get it to a pro brake shop for a full check. You don't skimp on dodgy brakes.

shouldn't. I took mine in and it was free even though it was a 2001 model with over 280'000km on the odo.

This from the recall pages.

Mitsubishi?Pajero?Accumulator fitted to the Hydraulic Brake Booster
PRA number: 2008/10314
Date created: 18th September 2008

Product information
Product description
NM and NP model Pajero vehicles equipped with ABS. The affected vehicles were manufactured between February 2000 and 28 July 2003.
What are the hazards?
Malfunction
What are the defects?
There is the potential for the Accumulator fitted to the Hydraulic Brake Booster (HBB) to lose pressure. This may result in the following braking phenomena: Brake assistance may be delayed under rapid brake pedal application and Brake pedal effort may be increased immediately after engine start after the vehicle has been stopped for a period of time.
What should consumers do?
Mitsubishi Motors Australia Ltd will write to owners of all affected vehicles.
Other regulator reference numbers
