I OWN A 2010 TOYOTA PRIUS, AND LAST WEEK I HAD THE ABS ECU UPDATED PER THE RECALL. PRIOR TO THE UPDATE, BRAKING OVER A BUMP OR POTHOLE WOULD RESULT IN A LITTLE 'SKIP' ON THE ROAD AS THE BRAKES KIND OF FLUTTERED. I JUST PRESSED THE PEDAL A LITTLE HARDER AND ALL WAS WELL. POST UPDATE, I HAVE A SERIOUS SAFETY PROBLEM. I HAVE EXPERIENCED THE BRAKES DISENGAGING COMPLETELY AS THE CAR HITS A BUMP. THE LITTLE 'SKIP' IS GONE, AND NOW THERE'S A PANIC MOMENT WHERE THE CAR LURCHES FORWARD WITH NO BRAKE PRESSURE. I HAVE TO REALLY MASH THE PEDAL THE GET THE BRAKES BACK. PRIOR TO THE UPDATE I WAS A LITTLE WORRIED THAT THE SLIGHT INCREASE IN BRAKING DISTANCE MIGHT HAVE RESULTED IN A CRASH. NOW, I AM VERY AFRAID. THE CAR IS ALMOST UNCONTROLLABLE WHEN THIS HAPPENS, AND IT IS ALWAYS UNEXPECTED. I FEEL THAT IF I CRASH, I WILL BE HELD LIABLE FOR SOMETHING THAT ISN'T MY FAULT. I ASK THE NHTSA TO REVISIT THE TOYOTA RECALL FOR THE 2010 PRIUS AND MAKE THEM PROVE THEY FIXED THE PROBLEM. I DO NOT THINK THEY WILL BE ABLE TO.
