REGARDING MY 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS: BRAKES DID NOT ENGAGE. IT WAS RAINING; I WAS SLOWING TO MAKE A RIGHT TURN INTO A PARKING LOT AND MERGED INTO THE TURN LANE, APPLIED THE BRAKES JUST PRIOR TO DRIVING OVER A DRAINAGE GRATE, AND CAR'S BRAKES DID NOT RESPOND. I RELEASED MY FOOT FROM THE BRAKE PEDAL AND THEN RE-ENGAGED IT, WHEREAS THE BRAKES RESPONDED. INCIDENTS VERY SIMILAR TO THIS HAPPENED TWO PRIOR TIMES WHEN BACKING OUT OF MY DRIVEWAY (NOT RAINING). THE BRAKE WARNING LIGHT ALSO GOES ON UNEXPECTEDLY WHILE IDLING AT A TRAFFIC LIGHT OR WHEN COASTING TO A STOP (NOT STOPPING SUDDENLY). WHEN THIS HAPPENS, I HAVE TO PLACE THE CAR INTO PARK AND THEN BACK INTO DRIVE. I INQUIRED ABOUT THESE ISSUES WITH THE TOYOTA DEALER AND HAVE BEEN ADVISED THAT THEY HAVE HAD NO COMPLAINTS OF THIS NATURE WITH THEIR 2010 PRIUSES.
