I've been the owner of a Sontota Limited for about 3 1/2 hours now. I
test drove it and picked it up during the day, but after driving about the
countryside at night, I have a question.
The headlights are fine when the road is straight and level. There is a
very definite line of lighted, and unlighted space ahead. There is no stray
light to speak of above about 8 feet of so. The problems though, was when I
hit some hilly areas. As the car is going down an incline, the lighted
portion becomes very short in front of the car and visibility is unsafe to
drive above about 30 mph ! If something jumped out in front, it would be a
serious problem. With high beams on, it is OK.
Is this normal for the projector style bulbs? IMO, it is damned dangerous
to drive on a very dark road with some hills with just low beams.
The car is going back to the dealer tomorrow for some other issues with the
remote starter, interior lights. We are not off to a good start (no pun
intended, but hey, it works)
