May not be this but when the ST170's first came out they had problems with the engine calibration not building up enough vaccum in the brake servo - if the car was stood for a few hours then driven off with the brakes used a few times before it had run much, you'd find that pressing the brake felt ok but the car didn't actually stop


By rights all the affected cars were recalled for a vac pipe mod and ECU recalibration, don't know if maybe some slipped through the net? It was a long time ago when this was an issue though.
