2012 Toyota Prius C Long Term Road Test

2012 Toyota Prius C: Braking Bad

October 4, 2012

I got in the Prius C last night for the first time in a long time, and thought, ?Where are the brakes?!?

Hybrid regenerative brakes never used to bother me much, but lately I?ve been immediately annoyed by nearly all of them.

Either I?m getting awfully sensitive in my old age, or I?ve just been driving some really great non-hybrid cars lately. Sure, the Prius C's binders work eventually and all, but the way they feel does not give me any confidence in them.
