I HAD JUST PURCHASED MY 2009 TOYOTA PRIUS THE EVENING OF FRIDAY DECEMBER 28TH 2012 AND HAD ONLY DRIVEN THAT WEEKEND. THEN ON THE 31ST I NOTICED WHEN I WAS PULLING INTO A GAS STATION I HAD ONLY ONE HEADLIGHT WORKING... DIDN'T THINK TO MUCH ABOUT IT. THEN WHEN I WAS LEAVING NOTICED THAT BOTH LIGHTS WERE ON WORKING. A FEW HOURS LATER I NOTICED A FLICKER LIKE A LIGHT WAS GOING OUT. NOTICED AGAIN PASSENGER HEADLIGHT WAS GOING OUT.. I HAD THE CAR BACK AT THE SHOP OVER A BATTERY ISSUE ON JANUARY 2ND AS MY BATTERY HAD SUDDENLY DIED. WHEN I TOOK IT UP TO TOYOTA I MENTIONED THE HEADLIGHT WAS TOLD OH NOTHING THEY CAN SEE. THEN MONTHS LATER IT CONTINUED. THEN AGAIN EVERY NOW AND THEN.. I WOULD FLIP THE LIGHTS ON AND OFF AND SOMETIMES IT WOULDN'T DO IT AGAIN FOR MONTHS... THEN IN SEPT 2013 IT STARTED TO DO IT ON BOTH SIDES. AGAIN CONTACTED TOYOTA NOTHING. THEN MY TEENAGER DAUGHTER HAD THE CAR AND CALLED ME HYSTERICAL SAYING NO HEADLIGHTS WERE ON. SHE HAD JUST GOTTEN HER LICENSE DAYS PRIOR. HER FIRST OUTING WITHOUT ME. THEN AGAIN BATTERY ISSUE WENT BACK TO TOYOTA WAS TOLD NOT A CLUE. NOW READING THE INFO I'VE COME ACROSS WITH 2001-2009 PRIUS HEADLIGHT ISSUES I'M PISSED THAT TOYOTA IS AWARE OF THIS AND LIED AND SAID THEYHAD NOT HEARD OF SUCH A THING. NOW OCTOBER 2014 I AM NO LONGER ABLE TO DRIVE THE CAR IN THE RAIN OR AT NIGHT. AS I NOW HAVE NO HEADLIGHTS. I FIND THIS A MAJOR SAFETY ISSUE AND CONSIDERING HOW MANY PEOPLE HAVE STATED THIS AND THE FACT SOMEONE CAN BE KILLED OR INJURED SERIOUSLY AS ONE OVERLOOKS I THINK IS A MAJOR SERIOUS ISSUE AND CONCERN. I AM NOT PAYING TO HAVE HEADLIGHTS REPLACED OR ELECTRICAL ISSUES AS THIS IS SOMETHING THAT NEEDS TO BE RECALLED AND FIXED BY TOYOTA.
