 Description of the problemI wanted to include my voice in the recent complaints about the toyota prius brakes. I have a 2008 prius and have experienced the same issue several times- the brakes seem to stop working and the slick-road warning light comes on when i go over a big bump or pothole while braking. Braking comes right back, but i can imagine this might be a bigger issue if there was a vehicle right in front of me, in inclement weather, etc. I have heard people only mention the 2010 prius model year, so i wanted to let someone know that the 2008 prius also seems to be affected... Thank you.
