The vehicle came equipped with an automatic switch to turn the headlights on or use the manual switch. When the automatic switch was used, the high beams were inoperative. It was not possible to turn on the high beams. The dealer stated it was normal. Also, the position of the rear view mirror size/height of the driver seat limited front view on the right of the windshield. The consumer almost hit a passing vehicle as he was going into the dealers lot and could not see it until it was directly in front of the vehicle.
