2006 Toyota PRIUS Exterior Lighting Problems, Complaints and Defects

 Description of the problemWhile driving to work at 4 a. M. On a back road, both hid headlamps failed. Trying to use high beams didn't work. Only turning lights off and back on would get them to work again. This happened several times. There needs to be a safety recall on these headlamps, no exceptions or limits on time/mileage. This is dangerous and if you check the web, toyota knows all about it. Talking to toyota they told me it was my problem. Really? Basic safety on a vehicle should be the responsibility of the manufacturer. This wasn't a one light failed and then months later another failed. They both quit at the exact same time. I guess someone needs to be killed before toyota takes responsibility. Their website spews how committed they are to safety. Sure, as long as the consumer has to pay thousands for it (the cost of this repair can be over a thousand dollars), they are committed. If they have to pay for their design flaw... Well... Then they aren't so helpful. Apparently this is a recurring theme with toyota and they need to be fined heavily and forced to fix this. Take action now before someone dies, please!
