    my brakes do the same thing. when.you hit a bump the abs sensors loose track and disables the Regen braking. pedal goes soft and you only have hydraulic braking. this of course happens when your pressing the brake going over a pothole or railroad tracks. not sure why they dont put some sort of denounce on the system that can filter this out

    Well, something happens, but how can you explain with such certainty exactly what's going on, lol.

    That should not happen. You have a problem.

    That was fairly significant damage for an older, low-value vehicle.

    I often think of this movie from years back (THX 1138), where a citizen in a future underground world makes a run for it. As he's nearing the surface, you hear robotic dialogue, discussing how much the pursuit has cost. At some point, they exceed budget, stop chasing him. Escape velocity, lol.

    In California the driver who put scratches on the rear of your car is at fault and as long as you mitigate damages with wise actions you'll be compensated for rental costs among other expenses incurred due to the accident

    I think in most states when a car is rear ended, the car in the rear is at fault for not keeping a safe distance. However there are some states with no-fault auto insurance law that require every driver to file a claim with their own insurance company after an accident, regardless of who was at fault. That being said, regardless of where you live no-fault state or not, l it is much easier to keep your own rental coverage on the car. No hassle, I can get a rental car from day 1 in case of an accident disabling my car.

    It happens, we all have this problem. Admit you have the problem also, it’s always the first step :p

    Agreed, this is normal on these cars.

    when my engine coolant pump broke from accident and stopped running completely, the "check hybrid " light came on. It came on when the gas engine got hot, and the car would turn off.

    I've been reading about this quirk for years, but have never experienced it.
    That said, my 1981 Mazda had a much better braking system in many respects.
