AS NOTED IN NHTSA INVESTIGATION PE10006. I ENTERED AN INCIDENT DATE OF 5/19/2010, BUT THIS HAPPENS CONSISTENTLY WITH MY 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS (PURCHASED OCT. 2009). IT IS AS DESCRIBED IN THE INVESTIGATION SUMMARY; A MOMENTARY LAPSE IN BRAKING WHILE TRAVELING OVER UNEVEN OR ROUGH SURFACES. I HAD THE SOFTWARE UPDATE PERFORMED LAST WEEK AND INTERESTINGLY, IT SEEMS TO HAVE GOTTEN WORSE SINCE THEN. IT'S VERY DISCONCERTING AND ALARMING. FORTUNATELY, IT'S NEVER HAPPENED WHEN THERE IS A CAR IN FRONT OF ME (AS ON THE EXIT RAMP OF A FREEWAY OR PRIOR TO A STOPLIGHT), BUT IF IT DOES, I HAVE NO DOUBT THAT IT WILL RESULT IN A CRASH, FOR WHICH I WILL NO DOUBT BE WRONGLY BLAMED AND CITED. I'M TO THE POINT THAT I WOULD PREFER THAT MY WIFE NOT DRIVE THE CAR AND AM CONSIDERING WHAT ACTION I CAN TAKE WITH TOYOTA --- RETURNING THE CAR, SOME KIND OF FINANCIAL COMPENSATION ETC. WHEN I HAD THE SOFTWARE UPDATE PERFORMED, I NOTED THE PROBLEM TO THE DEALERSHIP AND MADE THEM WRITE IT ON THE SERVICE ORDER TO DOCUMENT IT. THIS COMPLAINT IS ALSO TO DOCUMENT THE PROBLEM. I SHOULD NOTE THAT WE OWN A 1996 4RUNNER AND A 2003 HIGHLANDER (MY PARENTS OWN A 2010 PRIUS AND 2010 CAMRY AS WELL), SO IT'S NOT LIKE I HAVE SOMETHING AGAINST TOYOTA. ALSO, I TRAVEL A LOT FOR MY JOB (80%+) AND OVER THE LAST 6 MONTHS HAVE PROBABLY DRIVEN AT LEAST 20 DIFFERENT MAKES AND MODELS OF CARS. THIS HAS NEVER HAPPENED IN ANY CAR I HAVE OWNED OR RENTED.
