BOUGHT THIS CAR CERTIFIED USED FROM TOYOTA DEALER IN MID-MAY 2013. FIRST PRIUS I'VE OWNED, AND NOT USED TO DRIVING IT, SO THE FIRST COUPLE TIMES IT 'LURCHED FORWARD' WITH THE BRAKES ON, I WAS SURPRISED, BUT FIGURED IT WAS JUST RELATED TO THE 'HYBRID'. IT HAPPENED AGAIN LAST WEEK AT A STOP SIGN WITH ROUGH ROAD - BRAKING, HIT BUMPS, AND BRAKES DISAPPEAR! TOOK IT INTO DEALER THIS MORNING, AND THEY'RE SAYING IT'S 'NORMAL'. THEN I START RESEARCHING AND WHILE CAR IS NOT INCLUDED IN ANY RECALLS, IT'S THE SAME PROBLEM INVESTIGATED IN NTSB 10V039000. EXACTLY! CAR IS STILL AT DEALER, AS I HAVE ASKED TO SPEAK TO SERVICE MGR. AND JUST IN NEWS TODAY, SUPREME COURT IS ALLOWING CALIF 2010 PRIUS OWNERS TO SUE TOYOTA OVER A BOGUS FIX FOR THIS PROBLEM. NOT SURE WHAT TO DO, BUT NOT GOING TO LET UP ON THIS. HALF DOZEN TIMES IN 4 MONTHS THIS HAS HAPPENED, AND I LIKE THE FEELING LESS EVERY TIME. ANYTHING I CAN DO? (WHEN YOU ALL GET BACK TO WORK).
