 Description of the problemWhen driving this model, which i own, i believe the led lighting makes these cars unsafe at night. What i will call the led horizon which fluctuates greatly on hilly or uneven roads, causes loss of needed vision. Fluctuation in pavement reduces forward vision to as little as a car length going downhill & puts it into the clouds going uphill. & everything in between on slightly uneven roads. The horizon is caused by total lack of light - led lights don't shade or reflect gradually to darkness, but have that sudden cut off resulting in a tunnel vision effect. I have to live with & drive in foothills at night. I complained by phone & email to manufacturer. I brought up possible rewiring, different bulbs, anything at 5000 mile service & that i'd gladly pay for some lighting improvement. Dealer help said "no one else has complained" & there is nothing allowed nor available to help improve lighting. Manufacturer said they weren't aware of any problems. I cited 2015 corolla comments on this site & later emailed them the iihs study. Since toyota obviously has the prius v lighting figured out & this is a major safety issue i strongly believe all cars with led need to be brought up to safe standards. This doesn't mean just toyotas, but other brands affected. The little car is outdriving headlights at 30 mph. That & making all newer cars so low they sink into water puddles too easily are safety problems that need to be addressed industry wide. I'll give the date of 1st drive, but of course it is ongoing.
