TOYOTA PRIUS II BRAKE ISSUES. I HAVE A 2009 PRIUS THAT EXHIBIT SIMILAR BRAKING PROBLEMS AS THE RECALLED 2010 PRIUS. WHEN I'M COMING TO A STOP AND HIT A BUMPY PATCH, THE BRAKES WILL RELEASE MOMENTARILY. THE RELEASE IS FOR A SECOND RESULTING IN THE CAR TRAVELING 3 FEET BEFORE I HAVE TO APPLY ADDITIONAL PRESSURE TO THE BRAKES. THIS COULD EASILY MEAN A FENDER BENDER IF I'M A BIT CLOSER TO THE VEHICLE IN FRONT OF ME. IT IS ESPECIALLY AN ISSUE WHEN STOPPING DOWN HILL WHICH IS NOT UNCOMMON HERE IN SEATTLE. I BOUGHT MY CAR (BRAND NEW) IN SPRING OF 2009. I'VE ALWAYS NOTICED THE PROBLEM BUT THOUGHT IT WAS JUST THE NATURE OF THE HYBRID DRIVE. MY CONCERN IS THAT THIS MAY WORSEN WITH THE AGE OF THE CAR. PLEASE ADVISE. I WOULD HATE TO SEE THIS ISSUE DISREGARDED.
