problem #2

Drivers side headlight assembly broke from inside of the hood, causing light to jump around while going down the road. Head light is so loose it will fall out and dealership represenative said it is my responsiblility to fix. $214 plus labor and tax. I do not feel that a headlight assemble should crack unless there has been an accident. If the headlight does short out or fall of this could cause failure of lights while traveling atvery dangerous. I am very concered since this our car that my daughter has to drive back and forth to college. I do not understand why a dealership would not be concered for the safety of their consumers.
