That's bizarre, mine were done under recall in May 2019 on my 2014 car but it may be to do with your relatively low mileage - I'm at 50k

I'm booked into Brighton Mitsubishi this Friday, I'll let you know what happens. I expect that as neither of my calipers have the dot that signifies the remedial calipers were fitted to have both calipers replaced, and then perhaps get some reimbursement towards my caliper that I replaced myself if I can find the receipt.
Work was delayed until last Friday, but the guys at Brighton Mitsubishi got it done with their usual good service. Both calipers replaced. I forgot to ask for my replacement one back, let's hope I never need to replace the offside one again or I'll be mightily peeved.

Now to attempt to claim back the cost f the replacement that I'd had to do with MMUK. I suspect there is no incentive for them to reimburse me as it's not like I can say that I'll never buy a new Mitsubishi again...

Just had my caliper recall completed at Mitsubishi in Cwmbran South Wales. I immediately noticed that the brake pedal was softer and needs more pressure than before. Also the emergency braking system is not working or not working as before. I went back to the dealership who denied anything!
I have now arranged for a diagnostic check as I feel that the lack of emergency braking has made the car less safe to drive.
The amount of times the emergency braking system has kicked and saved me from shunt accidents is amazing.
Just wondering if anyone else has experienced problems after the caliper recall?

Soft brake pedal usually indicates brakes haven't been bled properly after grease monkeys have been messing about with them :roll:

I would suggest that if you need to rely on the FCM to stop you having accidents, you need to have some advanced driving lessons. The only time FCM has kicked in for me was when navigating a multi-storey car park and it didn't like the tight turns
