7/23/20 20:30, while driving straight down a city street, just began driving from stopping at a light, and the headlights turned off by themselves. After a few seconds, my wife rotated the lights switch to off then back to auto and they came back on. This is the third time this has occurred since we bought the vehicle in august of 2019.

ON 7/15/2020, I PURCHASE A 2019 Hyundai Sonata LIMITED WITH 6,182 MILES. ON 7/25/20, I WAS OUT AFTER DARK AND USED MY HEADLIGHTS FOR THE FIRST TIME. I NOTICED A DARK LINE IN MY VISUAL FIELD AND 2 HALF CIRCLES PROTRUDING FROM BELOW THE DARK LINE WHILE DRIVING WITH MY LOW BEAMS ON. I HAD LIMITED VISIBILITY IN FRONT OF ME AND WAS TRYING TO LOOK UNDER THE LINE TO SEE BETTER. I WAS ALSO EXTREMELY DISTRACTED BY THE 2 NOTCHES, WITH THE DRIVER SIDE NOTCH BEING MORE PROMINENT, AS THEY MOVE AS YOU DRIVE. THIS WAS NOT AN ISSUE ONCE THE HIGH BEAMS WERE ON. THIS IS MY 3RD SONATA AND I HAVE NOT ENCOUNTERED THIS PREVIOUSLY IN MY OTHER 2 SONATAS. I TOOK IT OUT AGAIN LAST NIGHT AND DROVE AROUND MY NEIGHBORHOOD TO SEE IF THE NOTCHES AND LINE WERE STILL THERE AND THEY WERE. I ALSO NOTICED THAT WHEN I TURNED THE CORNER THERE IS A BLIND SPOT CREATED BY THE NOTICES AND LOW VISUAL LINE WHICH PROHIBITED ME FROM SEEING A MAN WALKING HIS DOG. THIS COULD HAVE BEEN POTENTIALLY FATAL. HYUNDAI SONATA DEFINITELY HAS A DESIGN FLAW AND IT'S A HUGE SAFETY HAZARD. I CANNOT HELP BUT WONDER IF THIS IS THE REASON THE CAR WAS ALREADY TRADED IN. I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT IT HAS NOT BEEN ADDRESSED AND REMEDIED YET. DRIVING AT NIGHT IS MORE DANGEROUS TO BEGIN WITH. IT IS ALARMING THAT HYUNDAI HAS BEEN ALLOWED TO CONTINUE TO MANUFACTURE A CAR WITH SUCH A HUGE ISSUE FOR A PART AS VITAL AS HEADLIGHTS AND NO ONE HAS FORCED THEM TO ADDRESS IT. I HAVE NO DOUBT THERE HAVE BEEN AND WILL CONTINUE TO BE ACCIDENTS AS A RESULT OF THIS DEFECTIVE DESIGN. DISTRACTION AND REDUCED VISIBILITY IS NOT SOMETHING THAT A DRIVER WILL GET USED TO NOR SHOULD THEY HAVE TO. NHTSA PLEASE MAKE HYUNDAI ADDRESS THIS PROBLEM!

Middle screen went out putting the car in? Limp mode? Happened in the middle of the night and we didn? T have headlights or turn signals! Happened while driving about two hours from home when we tried putting a route in the touch screen after setting the automatic update for 2 am the following morning. The car has 101k miles the warranty expired at 100k miles. We notified tesla of the problems we? Ve been having with our screen freezing and rear view camera randomly not working while it was under warranty but the techs said? Everything is fine and it must have been a fluke? Now that the car is out of warranty the now suddenly know the problem and a solution! This defect is scary and left us stranded and unable to navigate to a safe area off the highway in the middle of the night without headlights!!! Why would they jeopardize safety over money!

When car is driving, or sitting the head lights will go on and off by themselves. Like when its dark they will shut off. Then come back on, switch is on automatic mode. Then when you switch to turn lights on it will do on and off. Been happening for several months, finally did it on my husband he was thinking i had lost my mind.

My head lights have turned off and on by themselves three times in the last two weeks while the car is in motion. Each time it's happened has been in different areas in the city i live in. I always keep my car's headlights on auto. The first time was at night when they randomly turned off by themselves. I looked at the dashboard and the screen for the headlight function was switching from auto to off by itself, so i jiggled the trigger for the headlights and they came back on. Same thing the last two times. Scary for me because my route home from work is pretty scarce with street lights.

HAVING ISSUES WITH THE TAIL LIGHTS EVER SINCE I GOT THE VEHICLE. FIRST IT WAS ONE LIGHT COMPLETELY OUT. THEN IT WORKED FOR AWHILE, AND NOW BOTH LIGHTS ARE INTERMITTENTLY WORKING. THE SIDE YELLOW LIGHTS WORK ON BOTH BUT THE RUNNING LIGHTS AND THE BRAKE LIGHTS ALL DONT WORK ALMOST ALL OF THE TIME. UPON READING UP ON THE INTERNET, MANY MANY SITES AS WELL AS LOCAL PEOPLE WITH THE SAME VEHICLE, ALL STATE THEY HAVE THE EXACT SAME ISSUE WITH THEIR TAIL LIGHTS. IT SEEMS TO BE A VERY COMMON ISSUE WITH THE SAME PIECES FAULTING IN ALL OF THESE YukonS. DOESN'T MATTER IF VEHICLE IS STOPPED OR MOVING THEY HARDLY EVER WORK.

My issue is regarding the inadequate lighting supplied by the halogen lighting in my 2020 kia soul s. The vehicle doesn't light the road far enough ahead to give the driver time to react if need be. I find myself driving with my brights on in order to see while driving at night. I contacted the kia dealer who told me that they have had the same complaint from numerous owners but there is no fix at this time. He believes kia is working on a remedy though. I attempted to replace the stock halogen bulbs with a better quality, brighter aftermarket bulb but none were available for this vehicle as yet.
