I WAS DRIVING MY 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS OVER A ROUGH SPOT IN THE ROAD. WHEN I TRIED TO SLOW THE CAR BY APPLYING MY BRAKES, THEY DID NOT RESPOND. IN FACT, INSTEAD OF SLOWING DOWN, MY CAR ACCELERATED ABRUPTLY, SHOOTING AHEAD SEVERAL FEET BEFORE I WAS ABLE TO REGAIN CONTROL OF THE VEHICLE. THIS EPISODE LASTED ONLY A FEW SECONDS, AND THEN THE BREAKING FUNCTION RETURNED. SINCE I WAS TRAVELING AROUND TWENTY MILES PER HOUR AT THE TIME AND NO ONE WAS DIRECTLY IN FRONT OF ME, THE EPISODE DID NOT RESULT IN ANY ACCIDENT OR INJURY. WHILE I HAVE HAD ONLY ONE OCCURRENCE OF THIS BRAKE FAILURE/ACCELERATION SINCE OWNING MY CAR, PURCHASED AT THE END OF SEPTEMBER, 2009, THE FACT THAT THIS CAR HAS A HISTORY OF PERFORMING IN THIS UNCONTROLLED WAY HAS ME DEEPLY CONCERNED ABOUT DRIVING IT.
