I BOUGHT MY 2010 PRIUS IN JULY 2009. SINCE THEN THERE HAVE BEEN SEVERAL INCIDENTS IN WHICH MY CAR SEEMED TO SURGE FORWARD WHILE I WAS IN THE PROCESS OF BRAKING AND HIT A BUMP, RAILROAD TRACKS OR POTHOLE. INITIALLY, I CONVINCED MYSELF I MUST HAVE BEEN LETTING UP ON THE BRAKE WHEN I HIT THE BUMP BUT WHEN THIS SAME THING HAPPENED 3 DAYS AGO ON SLIPPERY, ICY ROADS, I KNEW FOR 100% CERTAIN I HAD NOT LET UP ON THE BRAKE. MY CAR SURGED AS I WAS SLOWLY PULLING UP TO A STOP SIGN AND GENTLY BRAKING. I CAME VERY CLOSE TO HITTING THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME, HAD TO PUSH DOWN ON THE BRAKES VERY HARD, WHICH ACTIVATED THE ABS. THE ABS HAD NOT BEEN ACTIVATED IN ANY OF THE PREVIOUS INCIDENTS BECAUSE I HAD NOT NEEDED TO PUSH HARD ON THE BRAKES AS I WAS IN NO DANGER OF HITTING ANYTHING. I HAVE BEEN DRIVING TOYOTAS SINCE 1992 AND AM STUNNED THAT THIS PROBLEM IS HAPPENING WITH NO FIX IN SIGHT. THE DEALERSHIP IN MY TOWN ASSURES US THEY'VE NEVER HEARD OF THIS BEFORE, ALTHOUGH IT IS OBVIOUSLY HAPPENING ALL OVER THE COUNTRY. PLEASE INVESTIGATE THIS. I HAVE A 5 YEAR OLD AND I NO LONGER FEEL SAFE DRIVING MY CAR WITH (OR WITHOUT) HIM IN IT.
