Chrysler corporation headlights progressively cloud over and light output is reduced creating a dangerous night driving condition. Has NHTSA queried Chrysler about this problem and is there any reaction?

While driving the transmission failed and the vehicle was unable to shift gears. Transmission was replaced twice, however the problem recurred. The horn airbag and cruise control have been replaced. The vehicle had brake problems. The dealer determined that the front brakes were at 45% but the rear brakes were at 70%. the dealer cleaned and adjusted the brakes. The A/C failed, the dealer replaced the fan module. The power door locks failed. The cd player doesn't work. The low beam head lights do not provide enough light therefore the consumer has to leave the high beams on to see. This problem has been checked three times but the dealer said they seem correct. The passenger seat broke. The starter failed and as a result the vehicle would not start. The steering pump failed and as a result the steering wheel became tight when making turns. The rear heater lines were leaking. The water pump leaked.

While driving headlights fogged up, causing limited sight on both sides of the vehicle, and making it very hard to drive at night. Took vehicle to the dealer, and was told that there could be some condensation or there could be a crack in the lenses. Consumer has the same case with headlights with 1996 Plymouth breeze.

Both headlights appeared to be etched into the outer lens or had some unknown material inside the headlight assembly. Lights were only effective for about 50 feet. Very dangerous to drive at night. Local dealer contacted Chrysler and they replaced both light assemblies at no cost to me. However I have spoken with other drivers with similiar problems. Lens should have better resistance to pitting" coating inside" or have an assembly so you do not have to change the complete assembley. Some type of lens only to change or be harder so no damage in just 5 years and low mileage. Can not complain about my service but it seems to be an unsafe design.
