Headlights on low beam are aimed too low and thus have a very short range. Dealer said they were at factory spec so he would not adjust them.

Headlights are aimed very low and provide zero light above a low vertical cut off point. Took the car to the dealer and they said they aimed the lights higher, but I do not notice a difference. Looked at changing the aim myself, but there is no obvious adjustment mechanism. This is a serious safety issue because it is frequently impossible to see *anything* more than 8, 20, or 70 feet ahead when the grade of the roadway changes in a positive direction, for instance at the bottom of a hill when the roadway begins to transition from level to a positive grade uphill, or as you are traveling downhill, reach the bottom of a hill and the car is pointed downhill but the road ahead is level. This is also a problem when you are on a hill and the grade of the hill changes. The low beam headlights are fine on perfectly level roads, but are a crash waiting to happen anywhere else.
