 Description of the problemRear end collision hazard due to defective, poorly designed, automatic headlight systems. Almost got rear ended twice due to lack of tail lights, while in motion, driving! Toyota claims the 2014 corolla has auto headlights. While the switch is kept in "drl" daytime running light mode the car tricks you at night into thinking the auto headlight, side markers and taillights are on after starting the car, when they are not on. You start the car and the headlights, and dash gage lights come on but nothing else is lit. No tailights, no side lights. I am told by the dealer canadian versions of the corolla have true auto headlights and my car would have to be programmed to work as an auto system, after adding the dash sensor. I am requesting toyota do this to correct this safety hazard to avoid a rear end collision on this car. All of my cars the last 20 yrs had auto headlights and worked flawlessly except this toyota corolla. I even put a note on the dash to remind me to manually turn the light switch on, but it is not seen in the dark when starting the car. I do not know what else to do other than appeal to the nhtsa for a complete review of this major manufacturer flaw.
