 Description of the problemThe automatic lights on low beam are aimed too high and are blinding at night. Every car that passes me at night flashes their high beam lights at me; even a state trooper flashed his lights at me and blue lights, he didn't pull me over. I feel bad driving this vehicle at night, people are thinking i'm rude for driving with my high beams on, when i'm using my low beams. The high beams on this vehicle offer no additional lighting of the road, but they do light up the tops of trees very well. Also, the low beam lights are pointed too far to the left and right and leave a large dark " v " shaped void in the middle, exactly where my eyes focus on the road. The dealer checked everything, states operating as designed, they have no ability to adjust the lights. Per the service department: the kia tech line personnel are denying there are any issues with the lights. This is definitely something kia needs to fix. The lights are the only thing i don't like about the vehicle, and it only has about 1400 miles so far. The problem is mostly noticeable when driving at night on dark unlit roads, highways or rural driving.
