I HAVE A 2010 PRIUS VIN:[XXX] WITH 37,000 MILES. THE CAR EXPERIENCES RANDOM LOSSES OF POWER DURING WHICH THE ENGINE SHUTS DOWN AND DOES NOT ACTIVATE NO MATTER HOW HARD I PUMP THE ACCELERATOR. ONCE I TURN OFF AND PUSH AGAIN THE START BUTTON, THE ENGINE STARTS UP WITHOUT ANY PROBLEM AND I CAN CONTINUE ON MY WAY. I HAVE EXPERIENCED THIS PROBLEM 5 TIMES SINCE SEPTEMBER 2012. I HAVE TAKEN THE CAR IN TO THE DEALER (CALDWELL TOYOTA, NJ) WHERE IT WAS EXAMINED AND THEY TOLD ME THE ONBOARD COMPUTER DID NOT RECORD ANY MALFUNCTION. I AM GETTING WORRIED SINCE SOME OF THE POWER LOSSES HAPPENED WHEN I WAS ON HIGHWAYS AT SPEEDS OVER 60MPH AND I HAD TO COAST TO A STOP IN HIGH TRAFFIC AREAS. I WOULD LIKE TO KNOW WHETHER OTHER PRIUS OWNERS HAVE REPORTED SIMILAR PROBLEMS AND WHETHER YOU HAVE SUGGESTIONS ON HOW TO PROCEED [XXX] INFORMATION REDACTED PURSUANT TO THE FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).
