MY TOYOTA PRIUS HEADLIGHTS GO OFF FREQUENTLY WHILE DRIVING. I MUST TURN THEM OFF AND ON TO HAVE THEM COME BACK ON. IT USED TO BE ONE OR THE OTHER AT A TIME, HOWEVER NOW BOTH LIGHTS WILL GO OFF AT ONCE. I WAS DRIVING IN VERY DARK CONDITIONS WHEN IT HAPPENED LAST TIME AND THE ROAD WAS PITCH BLACK. THE FACT THAT IT WAS LATE AT NIGHT IS THE ONLY WAY I KNEW BOTH LIGHTS WERE OUT. IF I AM DRIVING AT DUSK OR DAWN, IT IS A MAJOR SAFETY CONCERN BECAUSE IT WOULD BE DIFFICULT TO TELL THAT MY LIGHTS ARE OFF WHILE I'M DRIVING, BUT VERY DIFFICULT FOR OTHERS TO SEE ME COMING DOWN THE ROAD. IT ONLY TAKES A FEW SECONDS FOR AN ACCIDENT TO HAPPEN. THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIP ACKNOWLEDGED THAT IT IS A KNOWN ISSUE AND INITIALLY SAID THAT THE REPLACEMENT WOULD BE COVERED. THEN CAME BACK AND SAID THEY HAVE NOT BEEN RECALLED SO IT WOULD BE OUT OF MY POCKET. I WAS ALSO TOLD THAT I COULD JUST CONTINUE TO TURN THE LIGHTS ON AND OFF WHEN IT HAPPENS BECAUSE THE LIFE OF THE BULBS SHOULD NOT BE UP YET. THAT IS NOT A GOOD SOLUTION TO ME BECAUSE I DON'T ALWAYS KNOW WHEN ONE OR BOTH LIGHTS GOES OUT AND WHEN IT MIGHT BE DIFFICULT FOR OTHER DRIVERS TO SEE ME. I FEEL THAT THIS IS A KNOWN HAZARD THAT SHOULD BE RECTIFIED BY RECALLING/REPLACING THESE BULBS.
