Complaint - Service Brakes

WHILE BRAKING OVER AN UNEVEN SURFACE COMING UP TO A STOP LIGHT, THE CAR LURCHED FORWARD, CAUSING IT TO SEEMINGLY ACCELERATE INTO THE CROSSWALK. I WAS COASTING UP TO THE STOPLIGHT AND APPLIED THE BRAKES CLOSER TO THE LIGHT, AS THE CAR WAS TRAVELING OVER THE UNEVEN SURFACE. THE UNEVEN SURFACE WAS CAUSED BY RAISED METAL PLATES COVERING ROAD CONSTRUCTION. THE VEHICLE WAS TRAVELING ABOUT 5-10 MPH AND DECELERATING AT THE TIME OF THE INCIDENT. THIS HAS HAPPENED WITH REGULAR CONSISTENCY EVEN THOUGH THE CAR GOT THE SOFTWARE FIX WITHIN A FEW MONTHS OF PURCHASE IN 2010. IT MOSTLY HAPPENS DECELERATING OVER POTHOLES IN THE ROAD, WHEN GOING FROM COASTING (REGENERATIVE BREAKING) TO APPLYING THE BRAKES BY FOOT.
