I READ ABOUT THE RECALL OF THE 2010 PRIUS CONCERNING THE ABS SOFTWARE. MY 2007 PRIUS EXPERIENCED THE SAME PROBLEMS RECENTLY WHEN I RAN OVER A CURB AT LOW SPEED AND THE CAR LURCHED FORWARD AT HIGH SPEED AFTER I APPLIED THE BRAKES AND I HIT A WALL ABOUT 5 FEET AWAY. DAMAGE TO MY CAR WAS A CRACKED BUMPER, SLIGHTLY DENTED HOOD, CRACKED HEAD LIGHT. I USED TO GET 50 TO 60 MILES PER GALLON AND I CAN NOT GET OVER 41 MILES PER GALLON NOW. I BOUGHT NEW TIRES AND HAD THEM BALANCED AND ALIGNED BUT THE MILEAGE HAD NOT IMPROVED. DAMAGES TO THE EXTERIOR OF THE CAR WILL AMOUNT TO ABOUT 2 TO 3 THOUSAND DOLLARS. MY TOYOTA DEALER SAYS THAT MY 2007 MODEL IS NOT PART OF THE RECALL. I HAVE READ BLOGS WHERE PEOPLE WITH MY MODEL TOYOTA HAVE HAD SIMILAR EXPERIENCES. I BELIEVE THAT THE ABS SOFTWARE IS FAULTY IN MORE THAN THE 2010 PRIUSES.
