Complaint - Exterior Lighting

THE 2009 TOYOTA PRIUS IS NOTORIOUS FOR HAVING HEAD LIGHT PROBLEMS. WHAT HAPPENED IS WHEN THE HEADLIGHT ARE TURNED ON THEY WILL AUTOMATICALLY TURN OFF SOMETIMES IT'S THE LEFT ONE SOMETIMES THE RIGHT ONE SOMETIMES BOTH THIS HAPPENS REGARDLESS IF YOU'RE DRIVING ON A HIGHWAY ON A CITY STREET OR NOT IN-MOTION. I HAVE BEEN PULLED OVER NUMEROUS TIMES FOR THIS DUE TO THE FACT THAT I HAPPENS ANYTIME THE HEADLIGHTS ARE TURNED ON IT IS DANGEROUS DUE TO THE FACT THAT WHEN YOUR HEADLIGHTS TURN COMPLETELY OFF ON A REGULAR BASIS YOU LOSE VISIBILITY. AND CONSIDERING 90% OF THE TIME WHEN YOUR HEADLIGHTS ARE TURNED ON IT'S NIGHT TIME EVEN WORSE. IN ORDER TO FIX THE PROBLEM WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO IS TURN THE HEADLIGHTS ON AND OFF AND THAT WILL SOMETIMES MAKE THEM TURN ON AGAIN THE THEN BEHOLD THEY WILL AUTOMATICALLY TURN OFF AGAIN LIKE I SAID THIS HAPPENS TO ME AT LEAST 10 TIMES EVERY TIME I DRIVE AT NIGHT. IF YOU LOOK ONLINE YOU WILL FIND COUNTLESS PRIUS OWNERS WHO HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM AS ME YET TOYOTA HAS NOT PUT A RECALL ON THIS. THIS IS EXTREMELY DANGEROUS WHEN YOU ARE DRIVING AT NIGHT.
