    2008 Toyota Prius Touring "Shortcomings Needing Toyota's Attention"

    I purchased a 2008 Prius Touring Pkg. 6. With GBS, and Rear Bumper Applique. Dec. 1st.
    Issue No.1.Ordered D.R.L. and Auto Headlights BUT DID NOT GET EITHER?
    TOYOTA CUSTOMER CARE SAYS; NEITHER FEATURE IS AVAILABLE IN THE US?
    Issue No 2. Auto Door Locks OWNERS MANUAL SAYS THEY ARE AUTOMATIC AND
    ARE CUSTOMIZABLE. TOYOTA SAYS; ALTHOUGH LISTED IN OWNERS MANUAL, AUTOLOCK FEATURE IS NOT OPERABLE OR CUSTOMIZEABLE?
    THIS IS A HORRIFIC SAFETY ISSUE AND A "CARJACKERS DREAM COME TRUE"
    If You FORGET TO USE THE ARMREST BUTTON TO LOCK ALL YOUR DOORS
    ANYONE CAN WALK UP TO YOUR CAR AND OPEN ANY OF THE DOORS!
    Issue No 3. Navigation System DOES NOT RECOGNIZE MY STREET
    OR MY HOUSE ADDRESS. TOYOTA SAYS; WE HAVE CONTACTED THE MANUFACTURER,
    AS SOON AS A SYSTEM UPDATE IS AVAILABLE YOU WILL BE CONTACTED. WHAT? THIS IS A 2008 BRAND NEW VEHICLE?
    THE SUBDIVISION STREETS HAVE BEEN HERE FOR 15 YEARS.
    THIS TOYOTA NAV. SYSTEM IS UNABLE TO RECOGNIZE MY HOUSE NO. OR STREET? SOMETHING IS VERY WRONG HERE?
    Is There Anyone Else Experiencing Any Of
    These Type Of Problems? I must Admit To
    Being A Bit "Disallusioned" With These "Shortcomings" From Toyota!
    My Prius Otherwise Is Just Great. MPG Current Average of 45MPG is Phoenominal Compared to my Old SUV.

    If you're really worried about safety (I, personally dislike DRL's and auto-locks and don't believe they offer any safety to society), you should never use your GPS when you go home anyway because someone can steal your car, then find and rob your house because they know that you probably aren't home.
