 Description of the problemI was unable to slow down going into an intersection at a reasonable rate of speed. While i was not accelerating, when i applied the brakes the car did not slow down as i would have expected. This same behavior has occurred in the past several months since i've owned the prius 2010 model. It seems to skip forward or accelerate while braking on a downhill or uneven surface. By the time i was able to stop i the airbags had gone off and i had hurt my neck and back. It is a new vehicle that now has almost $14,000 damage and won't be fixed for a month. If anything, i'm an overly cautious driver and wondering what i could have done to avoid the accident.
