I HAVE FILED A COMPLAINT HERE BEFORE ABOUT MY 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS, WHERE THE BRAKES WERE SUPPOSEDLY FIXED LAST WEEK BY TOYOTA FOLLOWING THE RECALL. HOWEVER, JUST TODAY THE BRAKING PROBLEM, WHEN HITTING BUMPS IN THE ROAD, SEEMS TO NOT HAVE BEEN FIXED AT ALL. DRIVING IN THE DC AREA, WHERE THERE ARE A LOT OF POTHOLES AROUND, IT IS EASY TO TEST WHETHER THE BRAKES ARE FIXED OR NOT. WHILE DRIVING ALONG THE ROAD TODAY, NEARING MY HOUSE, I HIT A POTHOLE, AND JUST AS IT HAD BEEN HAPPENING BEFORE, THE BRAKES SEEMED TO COMPLETELY LET GO AND THE CAR LURCHED FORWARD FOR A SPLIT SECOND UNTIL THE BRAKES SEEMED TO REGAIN POWER AND I WAS ABLE TO PRESS DOWN ON THEM AGAIN. PRIOR TO THAT INCIDENT, AND NOT 10 MINUTES EARLIER, I HIT A SMALL POTHOLE WHILE BRAKING LIGHTLY AND THE BRAKES GAVE OUT JUST SLIGHTLY. IT'S AN UNMISTAKABLE FEELING, HAVING EXPERIENCED IT NUMEROUS TIMES BEFORE TOYOTA FINALLY DECIDED TO RECALL THE 2010 PRIUS. UPDATED IVOQ 07/08/10.
