WHILE DRIVING MY 2010 PRIUS, I HAVE EXPERIENCED UNINTENDED BRAKE RELEASE ON 6 OCCASIONS SINCE TAKING DELIVERY OF THE CAR IN JUNE 2009. DURING THE SUMMER, ON DRY PAVEMENT, THE 1ST INCIDENT OCCURRED WHILE APPROACHING AN INTERSECTION AND GOING INTO A RIGHT TURN, THE LEFT FRONT WHEEL ROLLS OVER A (FLUSH TO THE PAVEMENT) MANHOLE COVER. THE CAR LOST BRAKING AND JUMPED/SLIPPED FORWARD. FORTUNATELY, THERE WAS NO CAR CLOSE IN FRONT OF ME. THIS OCCURRED 2X AS THIS IS ONE OF MY NORMAL ROUTES TO WORK. ON 2 OTHER OCCASIONS, NEAR MY HOME APPROACHING AN INTERSECTION IN WHICH I NEEDED TO SLOW DOWN, THE CAR JUMPED WHEN APPLYING THE BRAKES. THE PAVEMENT WAS IN 2 SECTIONS (SPLIT HORIZONTALLY), ONE PART CONCRETE AND THE ADJOINING SECTION ASPHALT. THE CAR SLIPPED/JUMPED FORWARD WHILE BRAKING. THE 5TH OCCASION OCCURRED APPROACHING AN INTERSECTION AND THE CAR LURCHED FORWARD AS I TRIED TO STOP ALMOST HITTING THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME. THIS WAS ON DRY PAVEMENT, DON'T KNOW THE REASON. GOING OVER POTHOLES ON AT LEAST 1 OCCASION,THE SAME REACTION. HAD MENTIONED TO THE DEALERSHIP SEVERAL TIMES, THE FIRST TIME BEING AT A NEW OWNER ORIENTATION MEETING. THEY WERE NOT FAMILIAR WITH THIS ISSUE. WAS ADVISED IF IT KEEPS OCCURRING, TO BRING THE CAR IN FOR AN INSPECTION. I NOW HAVE AN INSPECTION SCHEDULED FOR FRIDAY FEB 5TH AT THE DEALERSHIP.
