Beginning approximately the end of March, while driving at night, both of my low beam headlights have gone out at the same time. They came right back on at that time so I thought I hit a switch. Sometime in may it happened again, but the lights would not go back on so I used my hi beams. The low beams worked fine in the morning. This has happened about 3 more times since then and is becoming more frequent. Last night on July 23, it happened again on a dark, curvy road and I almost ran off the road. This morning, they work fine again. I called the dealer and they said there was no recall on this. I am surprised as this is a serious safety issue. I need to get it repaired, but since it is an intermittent problem, I suspect the dealer will not be able to find the root cause or fix the problem.

A couple months ago the low beam headlamps began to randomly and intermittently stop working while the vehicle was in motion. There was no apparent correlation between how long the vehicle had been running and when the lights cut off or how long it would take for them to begin working again. Only hi beams worked consistently. As of this past week, the low beam head lamps are no longer working for any length of time. A local mechanic has been engaged to troubleshoot possible causes. After reading online complaints, he will review the fuse block, relay and connections to the computer to determine where the breakdown occurs. We are in agreement with other comments posted on this site. It is very scary the first time it happens. Fortunately, the 20-year old driver was familiar with that particular curve and had the presence of mind to hit the high beams right away. I'm not confident all drivers would recover so quickly under such circumstances. It only takes a couple seconds to engage the hi beams if it's your vehicle and you know their placement. However, people are likely to fumble and switch from auto to manual for the low beams first before engaging the hi beams. That extra time could cost lives. It is a shame that after all these complaints and fires, there's no recall yet.

While driving the headlamps will cut off at night without warning. It is a random occurrence. Lights will cut off for a minute or two before coming back on. This happens about once or twice a month.
