Automatic headlight dimmer not sensitive to oncoming cars. Must now use manual dimmer. Not good for my older wife.

Grand Cherokee 4WD 6-cyl

I purchased 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee altitude with the standard headlights last year. These headlights are very dim and should be considered dangerous. They might be fine in a city with street lights but on country roads the low beams barely light the road and the spill into the ditches do nothing but light the edges. The high beams should be considered the low beams if they weren't pointed so high. The dealership I purchased it from won't do anything about the brightness because that is how they are from the factory, they did say they would adjust them if I thought they weren't pointed correctly. My parents have a 2016 Jeep Cherokee and have the same issue. My mother if she had a choice, would refuse to drive it at dusk or later. The weak headlights are a huge concern this time of the year because deer are a very real hazard in my area. I have attached an image of the low beams while vehicle was parked. The tree line is about 10 yards away. The picture doesn't do justice to how crappy these lights are when driving. At this point in time I'm forced to purchase aftermarket headlights for a new vehicle to rectify an issue that is putting my family in danger. By doing so may void warranty repairs. Thank you for your assistance and understanding.

The halogen headlight Grand Cherokee limited(without luxury group II, which the hid headlight comes with) is too dim during the night especially raining night. Hardly to see lines or objects. I went to a dealership asked them if I can upgrade it to hid headlight with my own cost, they said no. And the 2016 Grand Cherokee also use the same halogen headlight.

Headlights randomly blink at normal or highway speeds while in motion, sometimes during park mode.

Stock headlights are very dim, making visibility poor. This is an accident waiting to happen. This condition should prompt a recall. I have never driven a vehicle where visibility was made so poor at night. When turning right, you could never see a pedestrian if they were to your right. Not good!

Transmission seems to hesitate when I initially start driving (as if it is struggling with the gear) then it jumps. Gear also appears to be at #5 when I am under 40mph. Does not feel right and just recently started doing this. Only has 5500 miles on it. Then it seems at times that the front headlights flicker while driving when it is dark out.

The contact owns a 2015 Jeep Cherokee. The contact stated that the head lights were to dim which failed to illuminate an adequate amount of distance when driving during night time. The vehicle was taken to the dealer, where the technician was unable to diagnose a failure. No repairs were made to the vehicle. The manufacturer was not made aware of the failure. The failure mileage was 200. Updated 03/30/15
