The headlights are unacceptable because we can barely see with them at night. Makes me afraid to drive after dusk.
The failure mileage was 13,612 and current mileage was 14,000. The price is outrageous just for a headlight bulb when this may or may not be the problem. The dealer and manufacturer stated that they could not be of assistance or change the headlights. But now I am unable to use that window. The vehicle was not diagnosed or repaired. I am forced to turn on my brights.
The headlights appeared to be so low that you could barely see the bottom third of the car in front of you. It happened again tonight and I plan on contacting my local Lexus dealer tomorrow morning.
