The headlamps on my vehicle have been very poor, both in low and high beam positions ever since i purchased the vehicle. Thinking that their must be something wrong with the existing headlamps, i purchased the replacement bulbs and there were no improvements. When driving at night i have to stay on low beam with the fog lights on just to help to see. I can't use my high beams at all because the lighting is so poor. Gmc is aware of their headlamp issues on the 2014 and 15 models but nothing is being done about it to my knowledge. Without spending $500-$1000 to change them over to led, is there anything that i can do to improve this situation?

The owner programmed a 5 minute idle shut off and did not provide anything for me as the driver to stay warm at night i was driving during winter and traveling to states like wyoming where it reached 23 degrees. He has many things not up to dot regulations with his truck, lot of things are not working and damaged. He also didn't do any type of a pre employment drug test or for any of the other drivers he hired. He threatened not to pay me and withheld my pay on two separate occasions. He stole 800. 00 from my back account for damages to his company truck that i hadn't driven for 3 weeks i and currently taking him to court to get my money back. He has screwed over plenty of drivers and should be shut down.

My problems started about 2 years ago when i was having some difficulty turning in dark intersections at night. I couldn't see well enough to comfortably navigate the intersection. Now it is so bad that i have trouble on dark city streets at night seeing upcoming curves, intersections, or anything out more than about 20' out. Turning on bright lights fixes the visibility problem, but of course causes additional issues for oncoming traffic. I thought perhaps i had eye problems and have been to an ophthalmologist twice and they find nothing wrong with my night vision. I have no accident report or police reports to add to my concern yet. Guess you will just need to trust that what i'm describing is a safety concern that deserves your attention. Thank you in advance for your help with this issue.

WHEN INSPECTED THE CRACKS ARE UNIFORM IN SHAPE AND SIZE.

I was never notified of them extending the warranty. Vehicle does not have any rear lights working which is extreme safety hazard.

Halo lights in 2015 jeep cherokee went out. This is not a light bulb replacement. You have to replace the entire headlight assembly when this happens and it is $1600 for just the part. This is not covered under my warranty so when i called jeep to complain the person i spoke with advised me that she gets this complaint frequently. Lighting on the outside of your vehicle is important. Why would jeep put a part on a car that you cannot replace or change a bulb and if it happens frequently it seems to me that this is a defect of some sort.

Every 3 to 6 months either left or right low beam headlights (silverstar h11) are going out. The affected socket is extremely hot. Either there is a problem with the quality of the headlights or their is an electrical issue with the socket that keeps burning these bulbs out prematurely.

I received notification of a stop lamp switch recall from nissan and made an appointment with the local dealer, who is unable to get the parts needed. I contacted nissan and was told that the parts would not be available until fall 2021, possibly in october. They said i should drive it "at my discretion," and the symptoms could be that the brake lights won't work, which could cause collision or the car won't start. I can call them back if these things happen, but unless or until they do, i should just drive it "at my discretion. " i love my car and it has less than 4,000 miles on it. I am now skeptical of driving it. It's now may and i have to worry until probably october than my brake lights aren't working or that my car won't start.

My driver's headlight went out which is led with only 40,600 miles. I discovered that if the swiveling test feature fails when i first start the vehicle, it will turn off the headlight. That is a big safety issue because the led light will still work if the swiveling feature wasn't malfunctioning. I found out several people online has the same issue, and subaru won't recall this problem. My headlight did turn back on for 1-2 weeks before going out again because of the swiveling test feature fail. My dealer told me the entire headlight assembly would have to be replaced at a cost of $1437. 00 before tax. I refused because it's an led that should have never gone out with only 40,600 miles on it, and i bought it new. Also, i told them it's a safety issue since if the swiveling feature failed, the light should stay straight and be kept on, but subaru's design is to turn off the headlight. What are my options? I'm frustrated because of so little miles, and i don't have the vehicle paid off yet so getting rid of it isn't an easy option for me regarding money. Thank you.

When the car? S headlight switch is set to? Auto? , the head and taillights will turn on and off at random, regardless of lighting conditions. The lights randomly turn on while the car is off and stationary and has resulted in a drained battery on three occasions. . The lights turn on and then back off while in motion during daytime driving (as indicated by the dashboard indicator). When on and while in motion at night, the lights turn off, resulting in zero visibility while driving.

No headlights at night. Have to use the high beams and they are dim. Took it back to cadillac and they were aware of the situation and that there is no recall!????!!! More than willing to repair the vehicle for $2000. 00. Never would have expected this out of cadillac. Or nhtsa for that matter. How do you safely drive a vehicle at night with no headlights? Why is there no official recall on this problem?
