I PURCHASED A 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS IV IN NOVEMBER OF 2009. WITHIN A WEEK OF DRIVING THE CAR I WAS MAKING A RIGHT TURN AT AN INTERSECTION AND DROVE OVER A POT-HOLE. WITHIN A SECOND OF HITTING THE POT-HOLE I FELT AS IF THE CAR SLID FORWARD WITHOUT RESISTANCE RATHER THAN FEELING IT BEING SLOWED BY THE BRAKES. A FEW SECONDS LATER THE CAR SEEMED TO RECOVER AND FEEL NORMAL. I EXPERIENCED THIS TWO MORE TIMES AT THE SAME INTERSECTION WHEN HITTING THE SAME POT-HOLE. I ALSO EXPERIENCED SOMETHING SIMILAR WEEKS LATER ON A DIFFERENT ROAD. MY WIFE REPORTED SIMILAR EXPERIENCES 3-4 TIMES. WE FELT THIS WAS CAUSED BY UNFAMILIARITY WITH THE CARS TRACTION CONTROL SYSTEM. THE RECENT NEWS REPORTS ON TOYOTA BRAKING PROBLEMS IS MAKING IS RECONSIDER. PLEASE NOTE I PRESSED THE SUBMIT BUTTON TWICE. THE FIRST ONE PROVIDED ME CONFIRMATION NUMBER 10305515. I FAILED TO NOTICE AN ERROR WITH THE MODEL YEAR. I ENTERED 2009 INSTEAD OF THE CORRECT 2010. THEREFORE I SUBMITTED THE COMPLAINT A SECOND TIME WITH THE CORRECTED YEAR. SORRY FOR ANY INCONVENIENCE.
