I'VE EXPERIENCE BRAKING PROBLEMS WITH MY 2010 PRIUS. AS OTHERS HAVE REPORTED I TOO HAVE HAD AT LEAST A DOZEN INCIDENTS IN WHICH I AM APPLYING THE BRAKES AND THERE IS EITHER A BUMP IN THE ROAD OR MORE OFTEN A POTHOLE. USUALLY THIS HAS BEEN WHEN I WAS APPROACHING A STOP SIGN AND BRAKING MODERATELY. THE EXPERIENCE IS SUCH THAT THE BRAKES SEEM TO DISENGAGE AT THE TIME IN WHICH I HIT THE POTHOLE OR BUMP AND THE CAR LURCHES FORWARD FOR JUST A SPLIT SECOND. TO ME IT FEELS LIKE GOING OVER AN ICE PATCH AND THE SENSATION IS SIMILAR TO HYDROPLANING AS WELL. THIS HAS NOT CAUSED ANY ACCIDENT BUT DOES CONTRIBUTE TO A FEELING OF LOSE OF CONTROL AND CAUSES YOU TO POSSIBLY STOP A LITTLE LATER THAN YOU INTENDED TO. I HAVE 10,000 MILES ON THIS CAR AND HAVE HAD IT SINCE AUGUST 2009. I ALSO EXPERIENCE ANOTHER BRAKING ISSUE. SPORADICALLY WHEN I START THE CAR AND THE ENGINE HAS NOT COME ONE AND THE CAR IS ONLY USING BATTERY, THE BRAKES SEEM TO HAVE NO PLAY IN THE PEDAL. THE CAR STARTS TO MOVE AND WHEN I TAP THE BREAKS THEY JUST LOCK WITH A THUD AND THE PEDAL GOES ALL THE WAY TO THE FLOOR. I THEN RE STEP ON THE BRAKES AND THEY WORK PROPERLY AND FEEL NORMAL. THIS USUALLY HAPPENS IN MY DRIVEWAY OR PARKING LOTS AND MY FIRST REACTION IS THAT I HIT SOMETHING BECAUSE THE CAR SLAMS TO A STOP.
