PURCHASED 2010 PRIUS ON AUG LL,09. HAVE RETURNED TO DEALER 5 TIMES, BEGINNING ON SEPT.29, 09, TO REPORT SAME PROBLEM...WHICH IS THAT AT RANDOM TIMES WHEN I SHIFT FROM "P" TO EITHER "D" OR "R", THE VEHICLE LUNGES AND WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKE, IT IS LIKE HITTING A BRICK WALL. THIS PROCESS IS REPEATED SEVERAL TIMES IN SEQUENCE...LUNGE, BRAKE, LUNGE, BRAKE..THEN IT CORRECTS ITSELF AND DRIVES NORMALLY. I CANNOT PREDICT WHEN THIS WILL OCCUR, SOMETIMES IT IS WEEKS AND HUNDREDS OF MILES BETWEEN OCCURRENCES; SOMETIMES ONLY A FEW MILES AND HOURS BETWEEN INCIDENTS. THE DEALER ALWAYS SAYS THEY HAVE NOT BEEN ABLE TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM, THEREFORE NO DIAGNOSIS OR REPAIR. I HAVE REPORTED TO TOYOTA CUSTOMER SER. AND WAS ASSIGNED A CASE #. HAVE HAD ONGOING CONVERSATION WITH TCS REP TO REPORT THIS AND SEVERAL OTHER PROBLEMS, I.E. VARIOUS WARNING LIGHTS AT INAPPROPRIATE TIMES..."KEY DETECTED IN VEHICLE" WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD...
