Complaint - Service Brakes

I AM THE ORIGINAL OWNER OF A 2010 PRIUS. WITHIN THE FIRST MONTH, I CONTACTED TOYOTA, COMPLAINING OF THE BRAKES, WHICH WERE NOT CONSISTENTLY SMOOTH. IN GENERAL, THE BRAKES WORK FINE, BUT IF I HIT A BUMP OR DITCH, THE BRAKES SUDDENLY STOP WORKING FOR A SPLIT SECOND, AND THE CAR FEELS LIKE IT IS LURCHING FORWARD, BEFORE THE BRAKES SUDDENLY START WORKING AGAIN. TOYOTA SERVICE WAS NEVER ABLE TO "REPRODUCE" THE PROBLEM, AND EVENTUALLY I GAVE UP. A COUPLE YEARS AGO, THE CAR WAS RECALLED FOR THIS PROBLEM, AND I BROUGHT THE CAR IN TO BE FIXED. UNFORTUNATELY, THE RECALL WORK HAS NOT REMEDIED THE PROBLEM. THE BRAKES STILL SEEM TO OCCASIONALLY MALFUNCTION WHEN THE CAR DRIVES OVER A ROUGH PATCH. TOYOTA SEEMS TO BELIEVE THE PROBLEM HAS BEEN SOLVED, BUT IT HAS NOT BE SOLVED. THERE IS NO DIFFERENCE SINCE THE RECALL.
