Customer Question
My HI-Beam head lights...

My HI-Beam head lights are shining below my lo-beams. I have taken the vehicle too the dealer and they can't help me. This is a REAL serious problem because I CANNOT see any thing at a distance. I paid 31K for this vehicle and I'm not happy with this problem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Mechanic's Assistant: Have you checked the fuses? Have you checked the bulbs?

Dear, you don't understand , The aiming of the hi-beam headlights are seriously Mis-Aligned......

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model/year of your Kia?

2014- Sorrento SX Limited.....

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your vehicle yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have taken it too the dealer Twice and the service MGR said there's nothing they can do too fix the problem.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

1. Yeah. How is the Hi-Beams adjusted? 2. The 2017 and the 2018's have HID for Hi-beams. I want to know if there is an upgrade kit available to replace the bulbs with HID lamps??????????
