 Description of the problemI own a 2007 toyota prius sport edition. One evening on my way home i got pulled over for having a headlight out. That evening after going home, i got in my car to head back out and my wife followed me into the garage and noticed as i was pulling out that my headlights were both on. That is what alerted me to the problem which is that my headlights go off randomly. Sometimes it is the passenger side headlight, sometimes the driver's side. When one goes out i can usually get it to come back on by turning my lights off and then back on. The worst case of this is that one evening after leaving my in-laws house i had to turn on my bright lights because they don't have streetlights in their neighborhood. As soon as i turned on my brights, both lights went out completely. It was instantly dark and i had to slam on breaks. It took me a second to realize what was going on. I turned my lights off and back on and they worked long enough for me to get home. It is not unusual for one of my lights to go out on a daily basis. I began researching this and found numerous other complaints just like mine from other prius owners (http://tinyurl. Com/yecdlae) i took my car to the toyota dealer and the guy there basically told me aside that i could get the bulb replaced but just between us that wasn't going to solve the problem. He said my best bet was to file a complaint and hope for a recall.
