I HAVE A 2009 PRIUS, PURCHASED IN MARCH 2009. SEVERAL TIMES MY BRAKES HAVE STOPPED WORKING ON ROUGH SURFACES AND THE SURGED FORWARD. EACH TIME I WAS ATTEMPTING TO STOP FOR A TRAFFIC LIGHT. I WOULD BRAKE, THE BRAKES WOULD WORK, AND THEN I WOULD HIT A ROUGH PATCH IN THE ROAD, THE BRAKES WOULD STOP WORKING, AND THE CAR WOULD SURGE FORWARD. THE MOST RECENT INCIDENT WAS IN JANUARY OF THIS YEAR. EACH TIME I WAS ABLE TO STOP THE CAR BY LETTING UP ON THE BRAKES AND THEN BRAKING AGAIN. LUCKILY I HAVE NEVER HAD A CAR IN FRONT OF ME WHEN THIS HAPPENED. ONE TIME THOUGH I ALMOST WENT INTO THE INTERSECTION BEFORE BEING ABLE TO STOP.

Now lower prices on ALL K&N products. Save up to 15% / $85.
