 Description of the problemI have 2008 toyota prius and i had also had issues when trying to brake over uneven speed bumps or metal connections in bridges (i do not know the name of the connectors). One time while driving on the bridge i started to brake since the upcoming stoplight had turned red. Trying to slow my car down (since i was driving a street, i was not going fast in the first place), i pressed my brake pedal as i was going over the metal bridge connectors and the brakes did not work. It was if i was driving on ice. There was a car ahead of me so i slammed real hard on the brakes and luckily i was able to stop just a few inches behind the other car so i did not hit it. It was real close call. I have had similar experiences when i go over speed bumps (and i am going slowly over the bumps). It takes a while for the brakes to take effect. So i do not believe this problem is only related to the newer 2010 prius model. As discussed, i have braking problems with my older 2008 prius. Also, i would like to add that i believe the sticky pedal problem can also be found on japanese made toyotas (such as the prius). If you look up "sticking accelerator pedal" on the internet, you will find the same issue has happened with the prius too. However, luckily, i have not experienced this sticky pedal problem.
