I don't need my headlamps turning cloudy and yellow on me when the car is still like new. Got it in june of 2011 was a left over and only had 100 miles in it. Has anyone else had a problem with headlamps
Hi Dave02895,

Taking your Focus in to the dealership is a great first step. Let me know what the outcome is; I'm happy to step in if you need me.
