I took my week old Sonata GLX on a trip between Wilmington NC, and
Fayetteville NC last Saturday. On the trip home, I constantly had people
flashing me to turn down my headlights. They were. this past week, I had my
wife drive it, and I approached here on a similar type of road. Blinding! My
trip to the dealer today resulted in them telling me that "they looked a
little high" according to the marks they have on the wall in their shop
(somehow, I think that there's amore precise method of checking
headlights)... Anyway, they adjusted them down - WAY DOWN!
Now I can't see for s**
t! See pix here
http://n2qew.dyndns.org/Hyundai%20Headlight%20Pix/ that I took tonight. I
put a standard 3 foot traffic cone at 35 and 70 feet on a dark road (the
local cops were way down the road, and came flying up it to see what I was
up to - what an explanation I had - taking pictures of crappy headlights!
They probably thought it was too dumb sounding to be made up)
As you can see, the choices with the headlights on an '06 Sonata are as
follows: Blind oncoming traffic (yourself in the process 'cause of all the
oncoming traffic flashing their high beams), or set them so you can't see 70
feet in front of the vehicle.
