    Maybe they're telling you something?

    You either need to tone them down a bit, or aim them down a bit.

    Not for me. My wife's Murano has them and the cutoff on the top of the beam is very sharp. You see only to the limit of the cutoff and nothing, absolutely nothing beyond that. Regular headlines let you see some of the road ahead and you are able to see a turn coming. I've had the vehicle in the Nissan dealer to get them aimed and they tell me that it is just the nature of the beam.

    Driving in the hills is downright scary even at slow speed. When pointed downhill you can tell there is a change in elevation ahead but have no idea of how much or if there is a turn. My wife thought I was blowing smoke until we put the two vehicles side by side and she was surprised how much more you see with the Tacoma headlights.
