2013 focus foggy headlights

Hey guys. Just went and looked at a new 2013 focus and noticed the headlights were foggy on the inner corners from the inside. Same with my gf's car after a drive.
Is this a common issue?

No way man. My gf bought and picked up her car today brand new and mine just arrived at the dealership today. I haven't even taken delivery of it. Ford is going to put new headlights in it or they are keeping both cars.

They're not sealed headlights, and if you check the manual, you'll see that some condensation is normal. It evaporates once the lights are on for a few minutes.

Unless there is significant moisture inside (like standing water...) don't worry about it.

They do indeed have atmospheric vents.

Ask for Titanium headlights (if they're not stock on yours). They're less expensive anyway.

There is a good amount of fog and it looks really hazy. I ordered mine with the black pack so they are the titanium headlights. However my gf's are chrome
