2010 TOYOTA PRIUS - DRIVING ON ALABAMA STATE HIGHWAY CLOSER TO NASHVILLE, TN WE HIT A DEER. THIS WAS ON OCT 12, 2009 AROUND 8:30 AM IN THE MORNING. THE ROAD WAS VERY EMPTY AND CLEAR VISIBILITY. THE DEER CAME IN FROM THE LEFT SIDE OF THE ROAD FROM THE ONCOMING TRAFFIC AND JUMPED INTO OUR LANE. I HAD CLEAR VISIBILITY OF THE DEER AND APPLIED SUDDEN BRAKES...WE HIT THE DEER AND HAD EXTENSIVE DAMAGE ON THE CAR. WE NEVER THOUGHT IT MIGHT BE AN ISSUE WITH THE CAR...BUT NOW WITH SO MUCH OF SCRUTINY GOING ON WITH THIS NEW PRIUS, WE DO WANT TO BRING TO THE ATTENTION OF YOUR ORGANIZATION THAT FROM DAY 1 OF PURCHASING THE CAR THE BRAKES ARE REALLY FUNKY. WE HAD AN SUV BEFORE AND COMPARED TO THAT THIS CAR IS VERY VERY SENSITIVE ON THE BRAKES. IF WE ARE GOING IN AT HIGH SPEED AND BRAKE SUDDENLY IT DOES NOT COME TO AN ABRUPT HALT AND WE ALWAYS THOUGHT THAT IS WAY THESE CARS WERE. I NEVER HAD A NEW CAR AND NEVER COULD IMAGINE SOMETHING LIKE A BREAK ISSUE. SO COMING TO THE DEER HIT I FEEL NOW IN HIND SIGHT THAT WE HAD ENOUGH TIME AND DISTANCE TO AVOID HIITTING THE ANIMAL AND COULD NOT STOP ON TIME. THE CAR TOOK AN EXTENSIVE DAMAGE AND WE GOT IT REPAIRED AT A TOYOTA DEALER SHIP IN NASHVILLE AND TOOK A RENTAL CAR HOME. THE CAR LOOKS GREAT LIKE A NEW ONE BUT THE BRAKE IS STILL THE SAME. ON LOW SPEEDS IF I BREAK IT FEELS LIKE I HAVE PLACED REALLY HARD/SLAMMED ON THE BRAKES AND ON HIGH SPEED THE CAR DEFINETLY NEEDS LOT OF TIME TO STOP
