I HAVE A 2010 PRIUS, AND WHEN I APPLY THE BRAKES AT ANY INTENSITY AND MY VEHICLE HITS A DEFECT IN THE ROAD SURFACE, THE ABS SYSTEM SEEMS TO RELEASE BRAKE PRESSURE TO ALL 4 WHEELS COMPLETELY FOR ABOUT HALF A SECOND. THIS MAKES ME QUESTION THE EFFECTIVENESS OF THE BRAKES IN AN EMERGENCY SITUATION, ESPECIALLY ON HOUSTON'S NOTORIOUSLY NEGLECTED ROADWAYS. I WAS TOLD THAT THIS WAS NORMAL BY BOTH TOYOTA MOTOR CO. AT 1-800-331-4331 AND ALSO BY THE DEALER. TMC INFORMED ME THAT THIS IS THE WAY THAT THE ABS SYSTEM WAS DESIGNED. PLEASE LAUNCH AN INQUISITION AND/OR INVESTIGATION INTO THIS MATTER, FOR THE SAFETY OF THE OWNERS OF ALL TOYOTA PRIUS VEHICLES.
