I HAVE NOTICE A DEFINITE RELEASE IN BRAKING ACTION WHEN MY 2010 PRIUS GOES OVER A PATCH OF BUMPY ROAD, WITHIN 1 MINUTE OF LEAVING MY HOME AND GOING DOWN THE BLOCK. I EXPERIENCE THIS "RELEASE" OF BRAKING AS A SUDDEN BRIEF ACCELERATION THAT OCCURS WHILE THERE IS PRESSURE ON THE BRAKE PEDAL TO SLOW DOWN WHILE GOING OVER THE BUMPY PATCH OF ROAD ( A 20 FOOT STRETCH OF ROAD WITH NUMEROUS SHALLOW POTHOLES). I BOUGH THIS CAR USED IN SEPTEMBER 2013. (IT HAD 80,000 MILES ON IT AND A HISTORY OF TRAVEL OVER GRAVEL ROADS). ON MARCH 20, 2014, THE LOCAL DEALER DID THE E0E RECALL REPAIR ON THE MOTOR GENERATOR ECU AND THE POWER MANAGEMENT ECU, TO CORRECT ISSUES RELATED TO HARD ACCELERATION. AT THE SAME TIME, THE DEALER DID THE OLDER TOYOTA RECALL REPAIR ON THE BRAKE PRESSURE ACCUMULATOR ISSUE. I HAVE NOT NOTICED THIS BRAKING RELEASE ISSUE LATER IN THE DAY. IT SEEMS TO BE MOST NOTICEABLE FIRST THING IN THE MORNING, IN THE FIRST MINUTE OR TWO OF DRIVING.
