WE HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCING, INTERMITTENTLY, THE EXACT PROBLEM DESCRIBED IN RECENT NEWS ACCOUNTS ABOUT THE MOMENTARY FAILURE OF ANTI-LOCK BRAKES ON THE 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS. WHEN BRAKING ON A ROUGH OR SLICK SURFACE, SUCH AS THERMOPLASTIC LANE OR CROSSWALK MARKINGS, THE CAR FEELS LIKE IT'S SURGING FORWARD. WE BELIEVE IT IS NOT SO MUCH AN ACTUAL SURGING AS IT IS THE MOMENTARY ABSENCE OF LOSS OF BRAKING, BUT IT FEELS LIKE THE CAR IS A BIT OUT OF CONTROL, AND POTENTIALLY DANGEROUS. WE HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS MOMENTARY BRAKE FAILURE ON PERHAPS A COUPLE DOZEN OCCASIONS. FORTUNATELY, NONE OF THESE INCIDENTS HAVE RESULTED IN A CRASH. WE CONTACTED THE DEALERSHIP TO LET THEM KNOW THAT WE HAD BEEN EXPERIENCING THE SAME ISSUE DESCRIBED IN NEWS REPORTS, AND WERE TOLD THAT THEY HAVE NOT YET RECEIVED INSTRUCTIONS FROM TOYOTA ABOUT A RECALL OR POTENTIAL FIX.
