ON ROUGH ROADS AND TERRAIN, THE 2010 PRIUS THAT I RECENTLY BOUGHT CONSISTENTLY DISPLAYS DEFECTIVE BEHAVIOR. WHEN I AM TRYING TO BRAKE, AND DURING BRAKING HIT A BUMP (ALWAYS DURING A SLOW BRAKE), THE CAR ACTUALLY SPEEDS UP. THIS HAS RESULTED IN MY CHANGING MY DRIVING HABITS TO BE FURTHER AWAY FROM CARS IN FRONT OF ME, ESPECIALLY ON BUMPY ROADS. HOWEVER, I AM VERY CONCERNED THAT AT SOME POINT I WON'T BE ABLE TO STOP THE VEHICLE PROPERLY WHEN EXPECTING THE CAR TO CONTINUE A SLOW BRAKE, AND INSTEAD IT HITS A BUMP AND DOES NOT BRAKE. I DON'T BELIEVE TOYOTA IS ADDRESSING THE DEFECT AT THIS TIME FROM REPORTS I HAVE READ. MY MOTHER (WITHOUT GOING INTO ANY DETAIL AFTER HAVING READ REPORTS) ASKED IF I HAD EXPERIENCED ANY ISSUES WITH MY PRIUS AND I TOLD HER OF THIS EXACT ISSUE PRIOR TO BEING AWARE OF MEDIA COVERAGE.
