THE HID HEADLIGHTS ON MY 2007 TOYOTA PRIUS APPEAR TO BE DEFECTIVE. WHEN I TURN THE LIGHTS ON INITIALLY, THEY BOTH ILLUMINATE, BUT THE LIGHTS DIM PROGRESSIVELY, AND AFTER SEVERAL MINUTES THE LIGHTS ARE ESSENTIALLY DARK. THIS OCCURS IN BOTH HEADLIGHTS AND STARTED ONLY THIS MONTH. THIS IS A SIGNIFICANT SAFETY ISSUE, AS IT IS VERY DANGEROUS TO DRIVE WITHOUT WORKING HEADLIGHTS (PARTICULARLY WHEN ONE ASSUMES THAT THE HEADLIGHTS ARE WORKING SINCE THEY TURNED ON INITIALLY). IT IS MY UNDERSTANDING THAT THE ISSUE IS BEYOND REPLACING THE HID HEADLIGHT BULBS; ACCORDING TO THE REPAIR SHOP I VISITED, THERE MAY BE A DEFECT WITH THE HID ELECTRONIC CONTROL UNITS (ECUS). I UNDERSTAND AS WELL THAT THIS IS A DEFECT THAT HAS OCCURRED IN NUMEROUS TOYOTA PRIUS VEHICLES AND THAT TOYOTA IN 2011 AGREED TO A SETTLEMENT OF A CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT THAT PROVIDED SOME REPAIR COVERAGE FOR CERTAIN OWNERS.
