Most drivers are getting used to brighter blinding lights anyways and ours aren't that bad compared to what higher end car makers are offering. The worst are pick up's with HID's. The plus side to this is its that much more obvious as to where you are, better than not being seen as easily.I'm ok with my headlights even if they provide oncoming drivers with more glare. Having driven in cars with dim headlights, there is no question that I appreciate HID.
Yes and now that Chevy has the blessings from the insurance industry for great safety, they can go about the business of making front seats that work for everybody. I still believe the seats are the way they are for safety reasons and to score well in that side impact test.the more I learn the more impressed I am with this car - good job Chevy! Too bad the front seats suck so hard - it's a huge blemish on an otherwise excellent car!
It's a difficult compromise between providing adequate light for the driver and not excessively lighting up oncoming vehicles. This is not a problem with "newer vehicles" as I doubt older vehicles would meet the standard either.So the Bolt earned a "Top Safety Pick" from the IIHS.... good for GM... and us Bolt owners!
If the headlights had been rated either"good or acceptable" vs. "poor" it would have earned the "Top Safety Pick+" the IIHS highest rating available.
Bolt headlights "provide fair to good visibility but produce excessive glare for oncoming drivers."
What is with the headlights in modern vehicles? Why are they so poor?
