There is a well known flaw with Toyota hybrids that Toyota needs to address and fix. When you brake to come to a stop, if they car encounters bumps or potholes, the brake pressure will momentarily decrease and the car will surge forward. It does not appear to affect certain vehicles, but rather all hybrids. It can lead to a pedestrian being hit or other accident. It is most disconcerting to feel the car lurch forward while braking to a stop. Please investigate and put pressure on Toyota to issue a recall and repair.

I purchased my two new 2012 Lexus ct200hs in December 2012 with 23 miles on it. One of them has been totally fine. The other one, from the first day, had a very jittery ride. I returned to the dealer and they confirmed the ride was abnormal and they replaced all 4 Michelin tires. The tire replacement did not change the cars ride or behavior. I've returned to 2 Lexus dealerships multiple times as well as have been working with Lexus hq, and they're all now saying that the car is performing as designed. I can deal with a rough riding car, but at highway speeds, this Lexus has a high frequency vibration that travels through the car: Can feel in the floor, steering wheel, doors, seats. I commute 17 miles to work and by the time I exit the highway, my feet and lower legs are nearly numb from the vibration. The car is physically exhausting to drive. I can't believe that Lexus would call this driving experience as "performing as designed".
