Complaint - Unknown Or Other

I HAVE OWNED A 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS FOR APPROXIMATELY SIX MONTHS. DURING THAT TIME I HAVE EXPERIENCED ON SEVERAL OCCASIONS (6-8 TIMES) A FEELING THAT THE CAR IS ACTUALLY LURCHING FORWARD WHILE I AM DRIVING AT LOW SPEEDS OVER ROUGH PAVEMENT AND APPLYING THE BRAKE. IN MY CASE THE LURCHING OF THE CAR HAPPENS ONLY WHEN I AM SLOWING DOWN TO MAKE A TURN. IT IS A FRIGHTENING EXPERIENCE WHEN YOU'RE APPLYING PRESSURE TO THE BRAKE AND YOUR CAR FEELS AS THOUGH IT IS ABOUT TO TAKE OFF. THE SENSATION LASTS FOR A SECOND OR TWO NEVERTHELESS IT'S STILL AS I SAID FRIGHTENING. WHEN I FIRST MENTIONED IT TO MY LOCAL DEALER THE RESPONSE WAS THAT IT'S THE ABS BRAKES AND IT'S NORMAL.
