Yes, I have. I have a 2010 Prius and the low beams have gone out 4 times in the past 3 1/2 years. I've taken it to dealers, called Toyota Consumer Affairs, and everyone shrugs their shoulders. If you touch the wiring, the lights sometimes go on by themselves. They call it a "bulb" problem but it's an electrical problem that they are not willing to take responsibility for. I'm dealing with the issue right now. Toyota is not committed to anything except CYA.
