Low beam light is nonexistent no matter what light bulb I replace. Impossible driving at night as it is life threatening.

I own a 2015 Acura RDX. Obviously I didn't test drive the car at night so I was unaware of the MAJOR headlight issue. 4 days after purchasing my Acura I noticed I couldn't see anything on my way home that night. I contacted the dealership first thing the next morning just to be told my warranty doesn't cover headlights. I have come extremely close to hitting a pedestrian and also running into a ditch because my headlights are so dim. Acura needs to be held accountable for not fixing this problem so many of us have with the RDX's. Acura is turning a blind eye and refusing to recall the headlights. What irritates me the MOST is they recalled the Acura RLX'S for the EXACT SAME thing but don't see the problem with the RDX's. It's ridiculous and I will NOT stop until they fix it!!! According to them, it's not a problem until someone gets seriously hurt or even killed. Sorry but that's NOT my motto. Acura, fix this issue or deal with consequences from attorneys and lawyers. I'm over it!!!

My car's headlights have slowly been getting dimmer. At this point I only feel safe if I drive with my high beams on. Just a couple of weeks ago I had someone in my car and they were freaking out because they thought I hadn't turned my headlights on. I don't feel safe driving at night at all anymore. This is obviously a huge issue that Acura needs to correct before someone gets killed. When you see how many people are reporting and having this issue it makes you really wonder how many people just haven't reported it.

The headlights on the Acura RDX are so dim that it is an accident waiting to happen. I checked and 14 volts at the battery, 14 volts at the fuses, 14 volts at the relay, but 3 volts at the headlamp connector.

So many other people are having the same problem.

I reported it to the NHTSA. You should too. Then maybe we can get the factory to fix this.
