I HAVE A 2010 PRIUS PURCHASED IN SEPTEMBER OF 2009. IT NOW HAS JUST OVER 5000 MILES ON IT. SINCE THE BEGINNING, PROBABLY THE FIRST WEEKEND I OWNED THE CAR, WHEN BRAKING IF I HIT A BUMP IN THE ROAD, UNEVEN SURFACE, OR A POTHOLE OR SOMETHING, THE CAR OFTEN FEELS LIKE IT LURCHES FORWARD AND I HAVE TO IMMEDIATELY RELEASE AND REBRAKE. THE CAR FEELS OUT OF CONTROL. I HAVE VERY OFTEN FELT LIKE I NARROWLY MISSED LURCHING FORWARD INTO THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME. THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIP SERVICE DEPARTMENT INSISTS THEY ONLY KNOW OF RECALLS REGARDING THE STICKING ACCELERATOR PEDALS, NOTHING ABOUT THIS BRAKING ISSUE. YET I READ PLENTY ONLINE ABOUT THIS PROBLEM, SO I KNOW IT ISN'T ONLY HAPPENING TO ME. WHAT CAN YOU DO?? I'VE LISTED ALL THREE TYPES OF BRAKES IN THE EQUIPMENT AREA OF THIS FORM, BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT IT IS - SOMETHING ABOUT THE HYBRID BRAKING SYSTEM ALSO CHARGING THE ENGINE? ALSO I LISTED THE DATE AS THE DAY AFTER I BOUGHT THE CAR BUT THIS IS ONGOING, NOT A SINGLE INCIDENT BY ANY MEANS.
