To put it mildly, this is pure bullshit man. Pajero's are not build to milk the owner at 100K kilomters, but dealer sure would like. I have responded to each item bleow:

Timing belts have replacement periods. Timing chains are generally built for the life of the engine, except due to any unusual wear and tear so not required.

Not required, unless you see any excess smoke or reduction in engine performance.

Get it checked at a good independent garage. They will just remove the disks/tyres and see the pad wear. Even if you have to do it, you can buy OE quality spares much cheaper. Search the forum in the Pajero/Pajero Sport Threads.

Definitely not required for Pajero at 100K kilometers.

Rear suspension consists of coils and dampers. There is no way a Pajero driven predominantly on urban road will require a new rear suspension. Check to see if there is any oil leak from the dampers. If not, just forget it.

Long story short, the Mitsubishi dealers hardly sell any vehicle. They have only one model left to sell and a huge rent to pay for the premises. Looks like they want you to pay this months rent. Tell them very politely to bugger off and do a regular oil service.
