MY 2010 PRIUS IS ONLY 2 MONTHS OLD & WHEN APPLYING THE BRAKES, AT TIMES, IT FEELS LIKE I HAVE BEEN HIT IN THE BACK BY ANOTHER VEHICLE AND THE ENTIRE CAR JUMPS FORWARD BEFORE COMING TO A FULL STOP. SOME WHAT LIKE AN ENGINE SURGE OR THAT THE BRAKES HAVE NOT APPLIED PROPERLY. I HAVE REPORTED THIS TO MY TOYOTA SERVICE DEPARTMENT & THEY HAVE SUGGESTED THAT MAYBE IT IS DUE TO THE GAS ENGINE TURNING ON OR OFF AT THAT EXACT MOMENT. I FIND THIS TO BE VERY DANGEROUS AS THERE IS A DEFINITE SURGE FORWARD BEFORE THE CAR STOPS. IT HAS HAPPENED ON DIFFERENT ROAD SURFACES, SMOOTH, UNEVEN & BUMPY WHEN BOTH WET & DRY. THEY DID NOT FIND ANY SOLUTION TO THIS PROBLEM & TOLD ME TO CONTINUE TO MONITOR IT. THEY ALSO ADVISED THAT NO RECALL HAS BEEN ISSUED OR OTHER COMPLAINTS RECEIVED.
