I PURCHASED A 2010 PRIUS IV IN JUNE 2009. I LIVE IN THE KANSAS CITY AREA. BEGINNING IN NOVEMBER WHEN THE WEATHER TURNED COLD, USUALLY BELOW FREEZING, I NOTICED THAT WHEN I APPLY MY BRAKES SOMETIMES THEY WILL SLIP JUST FOR A FRACTION OF A SECOND. THIS USUALLY OCCURS BEFORE THE CAR HAS A CHANCE TO WARM UP BUT HAS OCCURRED WHEN THE CAR IS WARMED UP. THE BRAKES WILL SLIP WHEN I GO OVER A PORTION OF THE ROAD WHERE THE PAVEMENT IS BUCKLED, OR THERE IS A DEPRESSION SUCH AS DRIVING OVER A MANHOLE COVER, POTHOLE OR CONSTRUCTION CUT THAT WAS NOT PROPERLY FILLED. THE EXPERIENCE IS LIKE BRAKING OVER A SMALL PATCH OF ICE. I NOTIFIED THE DEALER OF THIS PROBLEM IN DECEMBER BUT DIDN'T MAKE AN APPOINTMENT TO HAVE THE CAR INSPECTED. AFTER READING AN AP NEWS RELEASE ON THIS TOPIC, WHICH DESCRIBED THE EXACT SYMPTOMS I AM EXPERIENCING, I MADE AN APPOINTMENT FOR 12 FEB TO HAVE THE BRAKES INSPECTED. I DON'T CONSIDER THIS TO BE A SERIOUS SAFETY ISSUE AS I ONLY EXPERIENCE THIS PROBLEM ONCE EVERY FEW WEEKS.
