Anyone else having problems with condensation? Mine are so bad that I can't even see the reflector through the lens. The dealer keeps telling me this is normal and that the bulbs will burn it off, but it just keeps getting worse. My theory is if they keep the condensation out, it won't have to burn out.

There seems to be two different answers around here.
One suggests to get rid of it: http://www.myjeepcompass.com/forums/...tion-drls.html
Other says it's normal in cold weather: http://www.myjeepcompass.com/forums/...on-lights.html

I don't see how they can consider this normal. It has got progressively worse since the day I bought the car. It has never "burned off" as they say it would. They have been in this same condition for over 3 weeks now. People are actually laughing at me now, a brand new car with fish bowls for headlights.

This definitely does not look normal. When I test drove a Compass before ordering my own Compass I detected some moisture in the headlight as well. But not as much as your Compass does have. And it was gone the very next morning.

Well I finally got a dealer to replace one of the headlights, although they are both in the same condition. Dropped it off at 8:30 this morning. They said it was a 2 hour job. Just got a call saying it won't be done till sometime tomorrow. It's getting a little ridiculous.
