plastic headlight covers on dodge shadow become translucent with age. lamps can be seen by oncoming cars but do not illuminate the road ahead. okay on well-lit city streets but headlights have almost no effect in the country. this is clearly a problem that should not happen, and clearly irresponsible of the manufacturer to let it happen. *cb

the car has plastic lens covers over a sealed unit on the headlights. moisture collects on the inside of the plastic enclosure and the plastic has become clouded to the point that it is dangerous to drive at night. the procedure to replace the headlights i am told will take almost 2 hours in labor thereby neccessitating an unreasonable charge due to design flaws. also the adjustment device to aim headlights does not function due to poor design. to cure my problem will require me to buy completely new headlights and have the same problem with the replacements. has this issue been addressed before? if so do i have any recourse? thank you, john baugh. *ak
