2010 TOYOTA PRIUS BRAKING PROBLEM. GOING DOWN STEEP LONG HILL, WITH ROUGH SURFACE, WE ENCOUNTER THIS PROBLEM 1 OR 2 TIMES A WEEK, REPEATEDLY. IT FEELS LIKE WE ARE "FLYING" DOWN THE HILL BRIEFLY, OUT OF CONTROL, WHILE IN FACT, WE ARE GOING APPROXIMATELY 15 MILES PER HOUR AND ARE APPLYING THE BRAKE IN THE SAME MANNER AS ALWAYS. THIS IS VERY SCARY, AS THE HILL HAS A HUGE DEEP RAVINE ON ONE SIDE, AND A HIGH CLIFF ON THE OTHER SIDE, AND A CLIFF OFF A BEACH INTO THE SALT WATER AT THE BOTTOM OF THE HILL. THE ROAD IS VERY NARROW, WITH 2 VEHICLES GOING UP AND DOWN ONLY ABLE TO PASS AT SELECTED POSITIONS, OTHERWISE, ONE LANE TRAFFIC. PLEASE DEMAND THAT TOYOTA RECALL THIS VEHICLE, AND REPLACE THE SOFTWARE THAT CONTROLS THE BRAKING SYSTEM. I UNDERSTAND FROM THE NEWS THAT THEY HAVE THIS FIX IN PLACE ON NEW CARS SINCE LAST MONTH. PLEASE RECALL THIS VEHICLE ASAP! MY VEHICLE NUMBER IS [XXX] PRODUCTION DATE 6/09. THANK YOU. INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
