I was pleasantly surprised with the brakes when I first test drove the GIII Prius -- considering all that was going on ----I found them to be rather "normal" But I don't like how the brakes work when you apply them and then go over a series of bumps -- I'm not sure what is going on ... but the ABS is clearly pulsing/ modulating the pressure -- with a diminished brake force the result. I have a route that takes me over a flat metal two lane bridge with gradual ramps at each end (that go over canals) -- then a smooth RR crossing on one side ... each of these transitions has a series of small bumps plus two pedestrian crossings. It is all 25mph .........So you come off the bridge --- starting down the ramp and apply the brakes.... The car slows down or at least does not speed up -- then the bumps ...... if someone approaches the crosswalk and you push on the brakes harder at the same time the car hits the bumps -- nothing more happens? You have to really hit the brake pedal. I know Toyota had an issue with some of the controls on earlier models. Anybody have this happen? It is a bit unnerving.
