I PURCHASED A 2010 PRIUS IN AUGUST 09 AND HAVE PROBLEMS WITH THE BRAKING SYSTEM. THE CAR "LURCHES" FORWARD WHEN APPLYING THE BRAKES ON A BUMPY SURFACE. I WAS FORTUNATE ON A NUMBER OF OCCASIONS THAT THERE WAS DISTANCE BETWEEN ME AND THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME. AFTER 3 OR 4 OCCASIONS OF EXPERIENCING THIS, I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALERSHIP IN OCT TO HAVE THEM CHECK IT OUT. I WAS TOLD THAT THE BRAKES WERE FINE, NOTHING SHOWED UP IN COMPUTER ELECTRONICS AND THERE WERE NO RECALLS. THEY TOLD ME THAT I HAD TO LEARN HOW TO DRIVE A HYBRID AND ONLY DRIVE ON SMOOTH SURFACES! WHAT CITY HAS SMOOTH ROADS WITH NO SEAMS OR BUMPY SURFACES ON IT. IT CONTINUED TO HAPPEN SO I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP A WEEK LATER AND WAS TOLD THAT IF I COULD RECREATE THE PROBLEM THE SHOP FOREMAN WOULD GO OUT FOR A TEST DRIVE WITH ME. RECREATING THE PROBLEM IS NEARLY IMPOSSIBLE. I AM A REALTOR AND MY LIVELIHOOD DEPENDS ON MY HAVING A RELIABLE CAR. I AM NERVOUS DRIVING MY CAR AND FIND THAT I DRIVE ALWAYS ANTICIPATING THAT I AM GOING TO HAVE A BRAKE PROBLEM...THIS IS NOT A SAFE WAY TO DRIVE. THE PROBLEM CONTINUES AND I DO NOT FEEL SAFE DRIVING MY VEHICLE. I AM HAPPY TO HEAR THAT YOU ARE LOOKING INTO IT. ALSO, CHECK OUT THE PRIUS CHAT ROOM FOR MORE COMPLAINTS ABOUT THE BRAKING PROBLEM. THANKS SO MUCH FOR YOUR INVESTIGATIVE WORK.
