Headlights mispointed?

Yup, it's me again!

Yes, I will call my dealer with some of these questions too, but quite
frankly we trust these guys as far as we can throw them, and I'm not sure
where else to turn.  And besides, if somebody answers, then it's on the
Internet, and we all know that if it's on the Internet it must be true
(grin)!

When using regular (non-brights) headlights, the headlights seem to point
right into oncoming driver's faces.  When I switch to brights, I see the
road, but I also see the upper parts of roadside trees.  Is this some
bizarre new plot by the same guy who brought us the
lets-blind-the-other-driver "high intensity" headlights?  Do all Priuses do
this?

And what is the plural of Prius - Pria?

Thanks again!
Chris

I have the HID headlamps.  They thoroughly illuminate the road ahead and,
most importantly, the ditches from which deer suddenly emerge.  Are other
drivers flashing you when you approach them in low-beam?

It seems to me that your headlights need adjustment.  What you describe
is not normal.  Take the car to a psychiatrist--or at least to the
dealer's service department.


That has been the subject of debate for years.  There is no consensus.

I like the solution one of the Yahoo Prius group came up with: Prius cars.
That way I don't sound as dumb as I look   8^P
