I AM WRITING ABOUT MY 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS. I HAVE NOTICED FAULTY BRAKES ON THE VEHICLE, MAINLY WHEN I AM ATTEMPTING TO BRAKE ON SLIPPERY OR BUMPY SURFACES. I LIVE IN CHICAGO WHERE THERE ARE MANY BUMPY ROADS AND POTHOLES, SO WHEN I'M COMING UP TO A RED LIGHT AND NEED TO STOP OVER A BUMPY SURFACE, IT FEELS LIKE THE BRAKES ARE LOCKING AND THAT I WILL SLIDE INTO THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME. BY PUMPING THE BRAKES, THE CAR WILL STOP, BUT IT IS A FRIGHTENING FEELING THAT I DON'T HAVE CONTROL OVER MY CAR. THE SAME THING HAPPENS WHEN IT IS RAINY OR THE ROADS ARE SLICK. THIS HAS BEEN A CONTINUAL PROBLEM SINCE I PURCHASED THE CAR IN AUGUST 2009, IN FACT I TOOK THE CAR BACK TO THE DEALER A FEW MOTHS LATER TO HAVE IT CHECKED OUT. THEY CLAIMED THAT SINCE I HAVE NOT DRIVEN A HYBRID CAR IN THE PAST THAT I WAS UNFAMILIAR WITH ITS BRAKING SYSTEM, AND THIS WAS HOW A HYBRID'S BRAKES WORKED. I DID NOT ACCEPT THAT ANSWER, BUT WHAT ELSE CAN I DO? I DO NOT WANT THEM TO REALIZE THERE IS A PROBLEM ONLY AFTER A CRASH HAS OCCURRED.
