LOW SPEED BRAKE FAILURE ON 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS. THIS DESCRIBES JUST ONE OF MULTIPLE TIMES I HAVE HAD WHAT SEEMS LIKE A SHORT, BUT TOTAL LOSS OF BRAKES ON THIS VEHICLE. EACH TIME, I WAS EASY TO MEDIUM BRAKING AND HIT A BUMP OR WAS ON ROUGH SURFACE. THE BRAKES JUST APPEAR TO FAIL. NATURAL REACTION IS TO PRESS HARDER ON BRAKE PEDAL. USUALLY BY THIS REACTION TIME THE BRAKES ARE BACK AND YOU STOP ABRUPTLY OR SKID TO A STOP. IT HAS SOMETHING TO DO WITH ROUGH ROADS OR BUMPS THAT HAPPEN AT A GIVEN POINT DURING BRAKING. VERY SCARY SITUATION. THIS HAS HAPPENED ON BOTH DRY PAVEMENT AND SNOW PACKED ROADS. AGAIN, THE COMMON FACTOR IS THE "BUMP" DURING BRAKING. EACH TIME I WAS THE ONLY PERSON IN THE VEHICLE AND THE VEHICLE HAD NO ADDITIONAL REAR WEIGHT. SPEED WAS UNDER 25-30 MPH.
