Complaint - Exterior Lighting

SAME BASIC COMPLAINT AS IN OTHER SIMILAR 'SAFETY COMPLAINTS'; FOR ABOUT THE LAST YEAR, HEADLIGHTS GO DIM, FLICKER, ONE OR THE OTHER WILL GO OUT FOR NO APPARENT REASON, AND MORE DISTRESSING AND IMPORTANTLY, IN THE LAST COUPLE MONTHS, THEY WILL BOTH JUST TURN OFF COMPLETELY AND AT THE SAME TIME WHILE DRIVING DOWN THE ROAD AT ANY SPEED. I HAVE TO TURN THE HEADLIGHT SWITCH OFF AND ON TO 'RESET' THE LIGHTS AND GET THEM BACK ON. I TOOK THE VEHICLE TO THE OFFICIAL TOYOTA REPAIR SHOP; THEY WOULD NOT ACKNOWLEDGE THAT IT IS A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM. BLAMED THE BULBS, WHICH IS IN CONFLICT WITH THE OWNERS MANUAL INSTRUCTIONS, AND WANTED TO CHARGE ME $ 550 TO REPLACE ONLY THE TWO BULBS. THIS NEEDS TO BE A RECALL ITEM AS IT IS VERY DANGEROUS TO HAVE ALL LIGHTS SUDDENLY GO OFF WITHOUT ANY WARNING, THEN HAVING TO FUMBLE AROUND IN THE PITCH BLACK TO TURN THE LIGHT SWITCH OFF AND ON AGAIN TO 'RESET' THIS FAILURE.
