WHILE DRIVING OVER A SMALL UTILITY ACCESS COVER IN THE ROAD, AT A RELATIVELY LOW SPEED, OUR 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS MOMENTARILY LOST BRAKING POWER AND SEEMED TO ACCELERATE FOR A VERY BRIEF MOMENT. ALTHOUGH BRAKING POWER WAS REGAINED VERY QUICKLY, THIS WAS ALARMING SINCE THERE WAS A PEDESTRIAN IN THE CROSSWALK IMMEDIATELY IN FRONT OF THE VEHICLE. ALTHOUGH THIS HAS OCCURRED ONLY ONCE AT THE TIME OF THIS REPORT, WE HAVE ALSO EXPERIENCED UNUSUALLY SENSITIVE BRAKING WHILE IN REVERSE. THIS PROBLEM WAS ALLEVIATED BY SHIFTING INTO NEUTRAL AND THEN AGAIN INTO REVERSE. THE PROBLEM WHILE IN REVERSE HAS OCCURRED TWICE AT THE TIME OF THIS REPORT. THIS IS MY 3RD TOYOTA PRIUS AND THE FIRST WITH ANY BRAKING ISSUES. THE CAR HAS LESS THAN 2500 MILES ON IT NOW AND HAD APPROXIMATELY 1500 AT THE TIME OF THE LOSS OF BRAKING POWER.
