Alert me when someone posts in this thread:

They're not the only ones. Mazda uses tiny little tail and brake lights, and so does Honda. I was surprised the last time I noticed a newer Accord on the freeway, how little of the large brake lights actually lit up. I think a lot of European companies are only abandoning amber rear turn signals in the US. VW, for instance, flashes the taillights in the US instead of the skinny little amber turn signals that are below them. An article in Jalopnik a while back said that US lighting regulations require a certain surface area to be lit, so VW and Audi's skinny turn signals don't cut it. Audi seems to have kept theirs in the US, but they're supplemented by flashing taillights, which looks odd since the actual blinkers are sequential and the taillights just flash. It's been said a million times, but US lighting regulations are outdated and out of whack with the rest of the world.
