I OWN A 2007 PRIUS. I WAS DRIVING ON THE INTERSTATE WHEN A CAR IN FRONT OF ME STOPPED ABRUPTLY. WHEN I STEPPED ON THE BRAKE, THERE WAS A DELAY BEFORE IT ENGAGED. TO PREVENT RUNNING INTO THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME, I VEERED TO THE LEFT WHILE CONTINUING TO STEP DOWN ON THE BRAKE WITH MORE FORCE. WHEN IT ENGAGED, THE CAR WAS OUT OF CONTROL "FISH TAILING" FROM SIDE TO SIDE. IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION, THERE IS NO ROOM FOR A DELAY. THIS CREATED A VERY DANGEROUS SITUATION WHICH COULD HAVE BEEN FATAL. I EXPERIENCED A SIMILAR DELAY WHILE DRIVING IN THE CITY, NOT ON A HIGHWAY. IT WAS THE SAME SENSATION OF THE BRAKES FAILING. WHEN ONE IS BRAKING IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION, THIS IS TERRIFYING AND NOT ACCEPTABLE AND NOT SAFE...
