SUDDEN LOSS OF BRAKING WHILE SLOWING DOWN WHILE GOING OVER A BUMP. APPARENTLY THE REGENERATIVE BRAKING FAILS, AND THE CAR RELIES ON ONLY FRICTION BRAKING WHEN GOING OVER A BUMP. THIS GIVES THE FEELING OF BRAKE FAILURE AND UNINTENDED ACCELERATION, AND THE ONLY WAY TO PREVENT AN ACCIDENT IS TO PUSH HARD ON THE BRAKES. THIS HAPPENS CONSISTENTLY, AND HAS SINCE THE CAR WAS NEW. THE TOYOTA ABS ECU FLASH WAS PERFORMED, AND MADE LITTLE OR NO DIFFERENCE.THIS IS VERY DISCONCERTING TO SAY THE LEAST, AND WILL LEAD TO ACCIDENTS. TOYOTA CLAIMS THAT THIS IS THE "NORMAL" OPERATION OF THE ABS SYSTEM - IN REALITY IT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH THE LOSS OF TRACTION.
