JUST REINFORCING WHAT HAS ALREADY BEEN REPORTED ABOUT THE 2010 MODEL PRIUS. I HAVE A 2010 PRIUS THAT WAS PURCHASED IN NOVEMBER 2009, AND I HAVE ON NUMEROUS OCCASIONS HAD ISSUES WHEN BRAKING AT SLOWER SPEEDS AND DRIVING OVER POTHOLES OR DIPS. THE BRAKES SEEM TO GIVE OUT FOR A MOMENT AND THE CAR ACCELERATES, RESULTING IN THE NEED TO SLAM DOWN THE BRAKE HARDER IMMEDIATELY. THE INCIDENT USUALLY ONLY LASTS FOR A SECOND OR TWO, AND I AM TRYING TO DRIVE EXTRA CAREFULLY TO COMPENSATE. BUT THE DELAY IN BRAKING COULD ABSOLUTELY RESULT IN A TRAFFIC ACCIDENT DUE TO THE INCREASED TIME TO DECELERATE.
