Kangoo fierce brakes

I have recently purchased a Kangoo Expression 1.6 Petrol automatic which has been adapted for disabled use. Hand controls were fitted but now removed and I drive in the normal manner. I have found that the foot brake reacts very sharply, violently, to anything but the lightest pressure causing the car to make what amounts to an emergency stop each time. Is this normal for the Kangoo car and can it be changed?

Re: Kangoo fierce brakes

If the car is fitted with brake assist then its switch may be faulty or needs re-adjusted.
