Failure Date: 11/26/2016

Purchased used 2014 Chrysler 300s on 9/28/16 after driving the car at night found that the headlights are very dim and when turning the car right or left almost no light. We live in a rural part of south eastern wisconsin and have a lot of deer and this is a very dangerous situation when driving at night. I called the Chrysler dealership and asked about any recalls on the headlights and was told they did not see any that were listed. I don't know what can be done to correct this problem but it absolutely needs to be addressed .

Driving my 2014 Chrysler 300 at night is very dangerous and unsafe. The headlights give you no side light and the low beam is very dim. The projected light beam is misadjusted and cannot be adjusted. Worst night time headlights I have owned. Something needs to be done ASAP. It is bad enough I need prescription eye glasses to see distance at night, but they don't work with poor headlights.

Headlights are very poor both down road and to side even with town street light directly overhead I almost hit my neighbor riding his bicycle as I pulled out of my drive. Dealer says nothing can be done to improve vision. Even on high beam, never get response from other drivers that lights are too bright. Rural road driving is almost impossible at night. Something needs to be done.

Failure Date: 12/03/2015

Running headlights are too bright. Since the purchse of this vehicle I am constantly having other drivers flick their headlights on at me to inform me my bright lights are on, which they are not! I just had an incident last night, a driver in front of me thought I was running my bright lights on, the driver pulled off the road and got behind me with their bright lights on as a way of letting me know, this driver was approx 10 inches off of my bumper doing 50 mph. Please offer a dimmer bulb. This issue will insue "road rage" from other drivers!.

The vehicle's headlights, dash, and interior lights would flicker, sometimes they would just shut off without warning. Cold start, idling, accelerating, and while braking. There is a TSB (18-003-05) detailing this issue. This is obviously a safety related issue and repairs should be handled by the manufacturer.

My headlights flickers on and off. This hazard almost caused me to have a serious accident. The lights goes from dim to off at any moment while I'm driving or if my car is standing still. Also, my signal lights began flashing out of control. Sometimes other drivers can see that I' signaling to turn and sometimes they can't. I've been told that my lights are fine. Evidently, this is one of Chrysler's defects. In addition, I've trouble with my front end wheels on my car. I've had to get the bearing that keeps your car going straight while driving replaced.

Failure Date: 12/12/2013

The lighting on this car is unbelievably bad. When I purchased the car, I drove it home at night, and almost put it in a ditch twice, due to substandard lighting. Even with the high beams on, it was difficult to see the road. I took it to the dealership the next day and they adjusted the headlights to the upper limits. I can now see better with the low beams, but the high beams shine into the trees. When I took it back to the dealership again, they said that there was nothing they could do beyond what they had already done. I have been reading other complaints of the same safety issue, and it is obvious that this problem in not unique to my vehicle, but extends to the Chrysler 300 built in 2012 and 2013. Lack of proper lighting presents a definite safety hazard at night, and Chrysler should be made to fix this problem before someone is killed because of it.

Failure Date: 12/02/2013

I purchased a new Chrysler 300s and the very first time I drove it at night I could not believe how dim the headlights were. You can barely see 10 - 15 feet in front of you. I have since been looking into changing the bulbs to something else to see if that will help. It's very dangerous to have that kind of limited vision. I live in a very rural area and there aren't many street lights in my neighborhood. This is something Chrysler needs to find a solution to and fix for all of us driving unsafe at night.

The headlights on this model are the worst I have ever seen. Forward vision is severely limited and side vision is practically non-existent. The only incident I have had so far is impact with a racoon that damaged the front fascia but the racoon could just as easily have been a person or larger animal. Chrysler needs to address this issue promptly before there is a fatal accident.

Chrysler manufacture is aware and has acknowledged the safety issue pertaining to the lighting or rather there the lack of lighting. What is it going to take for something to be done ?? fatalities . I was assured that they would resolve the issue however I am still driving a car that I paid good money for and can't drive at night. I took my car back to the dealership on three occasions for them to adjust the headlights as there is no lighting to the left or right sides in rural areas. After the 2nd attempt to correct the problem unsuccessfully one of the technicians that worked at the dealership met me the next evening at night and saw for himself and he reported to his bosses that there was a very serious problem. The dealership advised and gave contact info to directly contact Chrysler this was on 6/27/13 the following day received email and a ph. Call stating that the design team at Chrysler examined the identical model and acknowledged there was a definite safety issue assigned a case# and quote " there is in fact a factory defective flaw/characteristic in the design of the car pertaining to its headlights" unquote . I have almost ran over a mother and child out walking, I have been in 2 ditches and a inch from going into the river not to mention the animals. There is no excuse for dragging their feet it was explained to me that with it being a luxury car they didn't have enough complaints as luxury cars were seldom on rural roads especially at night . I am a disabled veteran been thru a lot and it would be a shame to meet my maker due to the self absorbed exec's at Chrysler . I fill certain that they wouldn't for a second pay for a vehicle that couldn't be safely driven at night. I have all of the dates and p. O. C. 's the case # assigned by Chrysler please resolve the issue before it takes an innocent life if it hasn't already. .

There was no crash but there is a hugh safety issue. The headlights on the car are the worse I've ever encountered (owner 12 cars). When you turn the corner on a un lit street there is a big blind spor left and right. I have almost already hit 3 parked cars close to the cornet because you cannot see them nor the curb. Even driving on a road it looks like there are blinders on the lights left and right. Checked with the dealer and there are no adjustments to be made. I don't understand how this hugh safety issue escaped everyones attention. Can you please respond to this issue.
