All Complaints

ALL THREE DRIVERS OF OUR 2010 PRIUS HAVE REPEATEDLY EXPERIENCED THE FOLLOWING BRAKING PROBLEM: IF YOU DRIVE OVER A BUMP, POT HOLE OR MANHOLE COVER WHILE BRAKING NORMALLY AT SPEEDS UNDER 25 MPH, THE BRAKES FEEL AS IF THEY INSTANTANEOUSLY DISENGAGE FOR ABOUT 1 SECOND. NORMAL BRAKING SOON RETURNS, BUT THERE IS A DANGEROUS INCREASE IN BREAKING DISTANCE WHEN YOU NEED IT MOST. WE HAVE IDENTIFIED CERTAIN ROAD LOCATIONS IN OUR AREA WHERE THIS PROBLEM IS REPEATABLE EVEN UNDER DRY ROAD CONDITIONS. THIS PROBLEM HAS RESULTED IN A FEW CLOSE CALLS, BUT SO FAR, NO ACCIDENTS. HOWEVER, I AM ABSOLUTELY CONVINCED THAT A DEFECT SUCH AS THIS WILL RESULT IN SOME DRIVERS HAVING ACCIDENTS.
