2010 TOYOTA PRIUS BRAKING PROBLEM. I BOUGHT A 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS APPROX 4 MONTHS AGO. DURING THE APPROX 10000 MILES I HAVE PUT ON THE CAR, I HAVE EXPERIENCED A BRAKING ISSUE APPROX 5 TO 6 TIMES. MOST TIMES I WAS BRAKING FOR A STOP SIGN IN A 30 MPH ZONE. ONCE I WAS BRAKING FOR A RED LIGHT IN A 45 MPH ZONE. EACH TIME, THERE WAS BUMPY ROAD DURING THE BRAKING, AND THE BRAKES RELEASED. I CAN'T SAY IF THE CAR ACCELERATED, OR IT JUST SEEMED THAT WAY BECAUSE OF THE BRAKE RELEASE. IT DID NOT CAUSE ANY ACCIDENTS, BUT ONCE IT WAS ON A SNOW COVERED HILL AND I SLID OUT INTO A 2 LANE 50 MPH HIGHWAY. THERE WAS NO TRAFFIC, AND THEREFORE NO ACCIDENT. ANOTHER TIME, I WAS STOPPING FROM 45 MPH AT A RED LIGHT, AND UNDER BRAKING, AGAIN ON BUMPY ROADS, THE BRAKES RELEASED AND I NEARLY HIT THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME. THE BRAKES RELEASED ENOUGH ALLOW ME TO PANIC AND JAM THE BRAKE PEDAL TO THE FLOOR. THE CAR STOPPED QUICKLY.
