I HAVE BEEN EXPERIENCE MOMENTARY LOSS OF BRAKING POWER WHILE DRIVING MY 2010 PRIUS ON ROUGH ROAD SURFACE OR POTHOLES MORE THAN 30 TIMES SINCE I OWN THIS VEHICLE. I FILED A COMPLAINT (ODI #10304434) BACK IN FEB 3RD. 2010 BEFORE THE RECALL FROM TOYOTA. MY PRIUS WAS INCLUDED IN THE RECALL, SO I BROUGHT THE VEHICLE BACK TO TOYOTA SERVICE CENTER FOR THE RECALL. TOYOTA UPDATED THE ABS ECU SOFTWARE ON MY PRIUS ON FEB. 2010. SINCE TOYOTA UPDATED THE SOFTWARE FOR THE RECALL, I STILL EXPERIENCE THE SAME PROBLEM MULTIPLE TIMES, AND IT IS NOT ONLY HAPPEN DURING SLOW AND STEADY APPLICATION OF BRAKES, ALSO HAPPEN WHEN I USE THE BRAKE IN MORE SUDDEN FASHION EVEN AT MODERATE SPEED (30-40MPH). I BROUGHT MY PRIUS BACK TO THE TOYOTA SERVICE CENTER AGAIN IN MAY 2010 TO RECHECK THE ABS ECU SOFTWARE, AND THEY SAID THE SOFTWARE IS THE LATEST UPDATED VERSION, AND MY BRAKING SYSTEM IS MEETING THE MANUFACTURE SPECIFICATION. HOWEVER, THIS PROBLEM IS STILL EXIST AS OF TODAY, AND MY CONCERN REGARDING SAFETY OF THIS VEHICLE IS GROWING BECAUSE THIS PROBLEM LEAD TO INCREASE VEHICLE STOPPING DISTANCE AND THUS RAISE THE LIKELIHOOD OF A CRASH OR ACCIDENT.
