THIS PROBLEM SEEMS TO OCCUR WHEN I AM JUST BEGINNING TO BRAKE OR IN THE MIDDLE OF BRAKING, IF I GO OVER ANY UNEVEN TERRAIN (I.E. POTHOLE, DIPS, ETC.), THE BRAKING SYSTEM FEELS LIKE IT IS GIVING. IT GENERALLY ONLY LASTS FOR A SECOND OR SO, BUT IT IS UNNERVING. I DO FEEL THE CAR LUNGE FORWARD AT THIS POINT, AND FEEL THAT I HAVE NO CONTROL OVER MY CAR. I DRIVE IN THE CITY ON A DAILY BASIS, AND THAT WAS ONE OF THE MAIN REASONS FOR ME PURCHASING THIS CAR. IT IS NOT A COMFORTABLE FEELING, AND IT IS TERRIFYING TO MY PASSENGERS. WHEN I CONTACTED TOYOTA, THEY WERE VERY CONDESCENDING. MADE IT SEEM LIKE IT IS JUST BECAUSE THE AUTOMOBILE IS SO ADVANCED AND TECHNICAL, AND THAT IS SUPPOSED TO HAPPEN. HOWEVER, MY 2 BROTHERS BOTH HAVE OLDER PRIUSES, AND NEITHER HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS.
