IIHS reports on car headlights

Not a single small SUV out of 21 tested earns a good rating in the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety’s headlight evaluations, and only four are available with acceptable-rated headlights.

Among the 21 vehicles, there are 47 different headlight combinations available. More than two-thirds of them are rated poor, making this group of vehicles even more deficient when it comes to lighting than the midsize cars that were the first to be rated earlier this year.

    It’s reasons like this why I rewired my own headlights in my poor old truck. The factory wiring had wires the size of uncooked spaghetti and would only send 9 volts to the bulbs. Swap a few wires around, add a relay and the low beams are brighter than the high beams. This can be done on many vehicles.

    How about sending a picture of your truck? I’ll feature it in Readers’ Rides.
