2010 TOYOTA PRIUS BRAKE PROBLEM. THIS OCCURS WHEN HITTING A BRAKE WHEN ON SOME SORT OF ROUGH ROAD AREA, LIKE A POTHOLE OR A BUMP. IT FEELS LIKE EITHER THE BRAKE ISN'T ENGAGING OR IT'S SPEEDING UP. IT'S HARD TO TELL. EITHER WAY, IT'S SCARY AND IT CAN CAUSE AN ACCIDENT. FOR INSTANCE, IF YOU'RE DRIVING IN MANHATTAN AND YOU HIT A POTHOLE AS YOU BRAKE WITH A CAR IN FRONT OF YOU. (I WAS LUCKY WHEN THIS PROBLEM KICKED IN AND I HIT THAT POTHOLE AS THERE WAS NO CAR IN FRONT OF ME AT THE TIME.) THIS PROBLEM HAS HAPPENED TO ME CLOSE TO 10 TIMES NOW. PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS HAS HAPPENED NUMEROUS TIMES. IT HAPPENED WITHIN A COUPLE DAYS OF WHEN I GOT THE CAR. I DIDN'T SEE "BRAKES" ON YOUR LIST OF PARTS THAT WERE DEFECTIVE. I DID SEE "SERVICE BRAKES" IN 3 CATEGORIES, BUT I DIDN'T KNOW IF "SERVICE BRAKES" WAS SOME SPECIAL MEANING, NOR DID I KNOW WHICH KINDS OF BRAKES HAD THE PROBLEM (OR EVEN WHICH KIND THE CAR HAS).
