WHILE BRAKING OVER A ROUGH SURFACE SUCH AS POTHOLES, TRAIN TRACKS OR JUST ROUGH PAVEMENT, THE BRAKES FEEL LIKE THEY CUT OUT FOR A BRIEF (WELL UNDER A SECOND) PERIOD. THIS COULD BE ABS ACTIVATING OR IT COULD BE THE CHANGEOVER FROM REGENERATIVE BRAKING TO FRICTION BRAKING OR SOMETHING I AM NOT AWARE OF. I WOULD DESCRIBE THE FEELING AS "FLOATING" OR HITTING A PATCH OF EXTREMELY SLIPPERY ICE OR LIKE MY FOOT HAS SLIPPED OFF THE BRAKE PEDAL. I AM CONFIDENT THAT THIS EVENT INCREASES STOPPING DISTANCE BUT I HAVE NO IDEA HOW MUCH AND IT MAY ONLY BE INCHES. I KNOW FROM READING, THIS HAS BEEN REPORTED YEARS AGO WITH THE PREVIOUS GENERATION PRIUS. OVERALL, I AM EXTREMELY PLEASED WITH THE CAR BUT THIS IS SOMETHING I BELIEVE SHOULD BE INVESTIGATED. OH YES, IT IS FAIRLY EASY TO REPRODUCE AND HAS HAPPENED TO ME 3-5 TIMES IN THE 6000 MILES I HAVE DRIVEN THE CAR. IT IS NOT NEARLY AS TERRIFYING NOW AS IT WAS THE FIRST TIME BUT WHEN IT HAPPENS IT DEFINITELY GRABS YOUR ATTENTION! IT HAS NOT CAUSED ME TO GET IN AN ACCIDENT BUT I BELIEVE THE POTENTIAL IS THERE FOR AN ACCIDENT TO OCCUR.
