I know this thread belongs in the Technical Discussion, but there are so many more people viewing in here... I have a question about the feeling people complain about when it comes to regenerative braking compared to regular braking... I own a 2010 Prius and this is my first hybrid. For years I have been reading, especially in car magazines, that the regenerative braking in the Prius leads to a squishy feeling brake pedal, and that you can "feel" when the regen is taking place via the brake pedal. Of course when I brake it feels different than it did compared to my 2008 Honda Fit Sport I had...but what kind of "feel" from the brake pedal should I be looking for when I am in regen mode? Also, when I take my foot of the gas, how do I know if I am applying too much or not enough pressure on the brake pedal to engage regen braking? I always try to apply a little pressure at first, and then more as the stop is coming nearer...always making sure the bar in the "charge area" of the Hybrid System Indicator never goes all the way to the left. I would really appreciate any input, opinions, personal experience, etc. you all have...and sorry this was SOOOOOO long... thanks!!!
