Howdy everyone. Just wanted to share something with you and see if its just me...or does everyone flash their high beams at you when you drive your Patriot at night? Since we bought our Jeep in May we can't drive at night without being flashed by every other car. I checked the aim of the headlights and they appear to be centered and at the correct level, yet everyone thinks we're blinding them. We never have to use the high beams since it seems the car's headlights are bright enough.
Is this a problem that I should bring up to the dealer? Is there a better way to check the headlight aim other than the PDF that I've seen on this site? Or is this just how it is because the Patriot is at that in-between ride hight between a car and a truck that just seems to cast light directly in oncoming cars' line of sight?
Thanks for whatever comments / suggestions you all have.

I get flashed all the time, it has to do with how the mirrors are shaped inside the light housing. It bounces light up down sideways and centerfold for full spectrum visual. It seems bright to others because this isn't practiced by most car companies, they just use projectors. You can have them re-angled if you so choose, but I really enjoy being able to see the road and its surroundings. I feel much safer, and they really aren't that bright...some people are just sensitive.
