I think that there's something not right with your booster. My w20 brake is as good as my jeep commander. Needs very little foot pressure.

The brake system on your W-22 should work exactly as the one on the W-20 you previously owned, since they are exactly the same system.

I would check for obvious problems first, linkages that may not be correctly adjusted or are binding. Since the booster system depends on hydraulic pressure from the power steering pump, check the fluid level in the reservoir. and that the hoses that connect the pump, reservoir, and steering gear are not kinked or collapsed. If nothing obvious is found, depending on your mechanical ability, maybe best to have it checked by a reputable repair facility.I take brake malfunctions very seriously. I own a 2004 W-22, and your description of a hard brake pedal is NOT normal for this chassis.
