We have issues with the headlights on our 2016 Sorento. We purchased it last year at the end of August, the lights were fine back then. We just noticed about 2 weeks ago a dark area where the headlights should be shining further in front. When we put our high beams on, you can really notice this dark area between the high beams & low beams. It is not safe to drive at night. The dealer/service dept at our local dealership checked them out, and claimed they are to specification. No they are not! Anyone else notice this dark area? It seems to me like the headlights somehow moved lower on their own.
We have the same problem with our .. my husband tried to reset them no luck we can't drive at night at all we are going to buy new light

Even the stock HIDs were no good even after adjusting their aim. I replaced them with aftermarket HIDs and it is a night and day difference. I have posted on these forums the pics at night.

Yes they are. They need to be aimed higher which has helped. I also think the auto light control is very lazy in adjusting the brightness.

Did you find a way around the auto brightness (light control)? How to aim higher and make them brighter? I tried aiming higher. But auto leveling bring it back to where they were.

You will have to keep turning them up. I sometimes think my auto leveling and DBL doesn't work right ..
