All Complaints

WE OWN A 2010 PRIUS AND SEVERAL TIMES SINCE WE PURCHASED IT IN NOVEMBER 2009 WE HAVE NOTICED ISSUES WITH THE BRAKING SYSTEM. ON EACH OCCASION WE WERE DRIVING OVER AN UNEVEN OR SLIPPERY SURFACE (E.G., POTHOLES, ICY MANHOLE COVERS) AND WHEN THE BRAKE WAS PRESSED IT DIDN'T IMMEDIATELY ENGAGE OR CATCH. RATHER, THE BRAKES ENGAGED AFTER THE CAR PASSED THE SLIPPERY OR BUMPY SURFACE. THE PROBLEM SEEMS TO RESULT IN AN ACCELERATION (OR PERHAPS SLOWER DECELERATION) WHEN ONE STEPS ON THE BRAKE PEDAL. ON AT LEAST ONE OCCASION, AN INDICATOR LIGHT ON THE DASH DISPLAY LIT UP.
