entire headlights will go out while driving for a short period of time then come back on again. this may happen 4-5 times in a 5 mile drive then not again until i drive the car on another occasion. when we went to have the vehicle fixed they told us the chrysler had just recalled all replacement parts off the shelves and that none would be available for 6-8 weeks. they also indicated that they had over 600 of these items on backorder from customer requests. i feel this must be a manufacture defect and should not be a cost that consumers should have to pay for. *jb
