I HAVE A 2010 PRIUS, 3D GEN, BASIC PKG. FIVE DAYS AGO, I REAR-ENDED A CAR STOPPED ON AN ENTRANCE RAMP TO RT. 15 IN NJ. I HIT THE BRAKES -- AND THE CAR SHUDDERED FORWARD AS IF ITS WHEELS HAD SEIZED UP. THIS PRIUS HAS HAD INTERMITTENT BRAKING PROBS SINCE I BOUGHT IT LAST AUGUST. USUALLY, THIS HAPPENS ON A ROUGH ROAD OR DURING A SUDDEN DECELERATION. THE BRAKES FEEL AS THO THEY'VE LOCKED, AND THE CAR ALMOST BOUNCES TO A STOP, RATHER THAN BRAKING QUICKLY AND SMOOTHLY. I TOLD THE DEALER -- AND THEY TOLD ME NOTHING WAS WRONG (INFERRING IT WAS MY PROBLEM -- THAT I'M A LOUSY DRIVER.) I REPORTED THE BRAKE PROBLEM AGAIN AFTER THIS ACCIDENT, AND WAS TOLD AGAIN THERE WAS NO PROBLEM. NEWS REPORTS NOW SUGGEST - THERE IS A PROBLEM. (BTW - MY CAR HAS ALSO DONE SOME BRIEF SPURTS OF ACCELERATION, WHICH IS ODD IN ANY HYBRID. THEY USUALLY HAVE NO REAL PICK-UP.) I HAD NEVER BEFORE DRIVEN A PRIUS, SO I FIGURED THAT WAS HOW THE CAR RAN. PLEASE LET ME KNOW HOW TO DEAL WITH THIS? THE DEALER SAYS THEY'LL CHECK THE BRAKES - BUT THEY DON'T KNOW WHAT THEY'RE LOOKING FOR. ALSO - MY CAR INSURANCE RATES WILL GO UP BECAUSE OF THIS ACCIDENT, AND IT COST ME THE $500 DEDUCTIBLE. I'M DISGUSTED, TO SAY THE LEAST. I THOUGHT I'D BOUGHT THE HOLY GRAIL OF DESIGN EXCELLENCE & FUEL ECONOMY -- NEW AND IMPROVED 3D-GENERATION. I BOUGHT AN EXPENSIVE HEADACHE.
