LED Headlight Question
We are currently considering a 2017 Armada SL, and during a test drive down a dark road, we felt as if the illumination was lacking. The lights we extremely bright directly in front of the vehicle, but lacked projecting the upcoming curve in the road, or other objects (road markers and signage), until we were relatively close (I will appoximate ~10 vehicle lenghts). This was corrected when I put the brights on, however one cannot always drive with their high beams on. Furthermore, I felt as if I drove above 40mph I was out driving my lights. What is everyone's experience with the LED headlights on the 2017 Armada?
We currently drive a 2015 Acura MDX with LED lights, and followed the same test drive route, and there was a marked difference in the illumination pattern, specifically how far down the road I was able to see. Since the IIHS hasn't rated the Armada, I am unable to see how they rate the headlight performance, as well as the illumination pattern.
Before commiting to buy a vehicle, we obviously need to determine if this issue is with all Armada's or maybe just the vehicle we test drove.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts and feedback. Lastly if there was one major "CON" with the 2017 Armada, please list that as well (besides the dated Entertainment/NAV system).
