I cant believe Lexus is letting this continue with such a major safety issue of having non working headlights. I have 2 kids, what if my kids are riding bikes or your kids and someone else doesn't see them due to poor headlights. What if I hit this kid or even worst, killed him!

The contact aneuvered to the side of the road to confirm that the light was no longer illuminating. We dismissed as a fluke.
Dealership does not carry rebuilt trransmissions. The vehicle was not taken to have the failure diagnosed or repaired.

I took the vehicle in to Lexus, they first said it sounded like the light bulb was burning out, but later identified it as a component inside the light housing.
