I bought my 2003 mitsibushi Outlander in January 2005 with 32,000 miles on it. The headlights were showing some stress cracks from the headlamp heat. I now have 69,000 miles on the car and the headlights have sever stress cracks in the lenses that are extremely noticeable. I have heard this is a common problem for these cars.
