Complaint - Service Brakes

I READ THE COMPLAINTS & FOUND ONE LISTED RECENTLY DATED 5/22/15 THAT DESCRIBES THE EXACT PROBLEM I HAVE. MY PRIUS IS A 2010 PURCHASED IN 7/09 & SHORTLY THEREAFTER, I NOTICED THE BRAKING ISSUE. THE FOLLOWING INFO IN QUOTES IS COPIED FROM THE OTHER COMPLAINT WHICH IS THE SAME ISSUE I HAVE - (OTHER COMPLAINT STATED) "WHEN YOU ARE AT LOWER SPEEDS AND HIT A POTHOLE OR BIG BUMP WHILE BREAKING, THERE'S A SUDDEN 'JOLT' AND IT FEELS AS IF THE BREAKS HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY RELEASED MOMENTARILY. IT ALMOST FEELS AS IF THE CAR LURCHES FORWARD. I FEEL IT HEIGHTENS THE CHANCE OF A CRASH DUE TO INCREASED DECELERATION TIME." IT SOMETIMES FEELS LIKE YOU ARE SLIDING ON ICE & HAVE NO CONTROL OVER THE CAR. (AND IT IS SCARY WHEN IT HAPPENS!) I HAD TOYOTA CHECK MY VEHICLE A FEW TIMES, BUT THEY WERE NOT ABLE TO DUPLICATE THE PROBLEM, SO NOTHING WAS FIXED. I THOUGHT IT WAS JUST MY CAR THIS WAS HAPPENING TO. NOW I FIND THAT I AM NOT ALONE IN THIS. THE COMPLAINT I REFERENCED STATED THAT THERE WAS AND A "PREVIOUS INVESTIGATION & PARTIAL RECALL BUT IT DIDN'T AFFECT ALL OF THE 2010 PRODUCTION VEHICLES, JUST A PORTION." I NEVER HEARD ABOUT ANY RECALL OR INVESTIGATION ON THIS. I AGREE WITH THE OTHER COMPLAINT THAT "THIS NEEDS TO BE RE-INVESTIGATED AS MY CAR AND COUNTLESS OTHER CARS (BOTH INVOLVED AND NOT INVOLVED IN THE LAST RECALL) ARE (STILL) MALFUNCTIONING WHEN IT COMES TO THE BREAKING SYSTEM AT SLOWER SPEEDS WHEN ON ROUGH ROADS / ENCOUNTERING POTHOLES / BUMPS." MY CAR STILL HAS THIS PROBLEM EVEN AS IT IS NOW 5 YEARS OLD. WHAT NEEDS TO BE DONE TO CORRECT THIS ISSUE?
