The headlights keep burning out. I've had the car for a little over a year now and have had to replace the headlights 3 times. I was driving one night a couple months ago and both low beam headlights went out. That was very dangerous. That was my second set of headlights now i'm on my 3rd set and the drivers side went out. I paid extra for the best set of headlights autozone had to offer at the time as i was in desperate need so i could drive home and it still lasted the same amount of time, purchased on 1/22/2021. Also, they're always dim. For the most expensive set of lights i expected more. I did a little research and seen that this is very common for this vehicle. Why is this allowed to continue? Someone is going to get hurt. Please research this and see what could be done. Headlights are very expensive. I have two other vehicles. A 2017 dodge journey that has never needed a headlight change and a 2007 ford escape that has only needed a few headlights in its entire existence. This is not right. The date listed below is the most recent incident.
Every time i turn my headlights on my break lights stay on and the traction light comes on. People think i am riding my brakes.
