Complaint - Exterior Lighting

I PURCHASED THE CAR NEW IN 2010. ABOUT A YEAR AGO, THE HEADLIGHT BULBS STARTED BURNING OUT REPEATEDLY, AS WELL AS THE MARKER BULBS AND THE LICENSE PLATE BULBS. THE LAST INCIDENT WAS CHILLING. I RETURNED FROM A TRIP, GOT OFF THE PLANE, PICKED UP MY CAR AT AIRPORT PARKING, TURNED ON THE HEADLIGHTS AND THEY WERE BOTH OUT. I HAD TO DRIVE 45 MILES HOME AT 10 PM EITHER WITHOUT HEADLIGHTS OR WITH MY BRIGHTS ON. IT WAS TERRIFYING. THE BULBS HAD BEEN REPLACED WITHIN THE PREVIOUS 6 MONTHS. THIS IS A SERIOUS DEFECT THAT NHTSA AND TOYOTA MUST ADDRESS. I HAVE FRIENDS WHO ARE HAVING SIMILAR PROBLEMS. ADDITIONALLY, THE HEADLIGHT CASINGS ARE MARRED, WHICH DIMINISHES VISIBILITY. TOYOTA CLEARLY HAS USED DEFECTIVE PARTS TO ENCASE THE HEADLIGHTS. AGAIN, MY FRIENDS WITH PRIUSES HAVE THE SAME ISSUE.
