The dashboard indicator for the headlight shows the parking light symbol for both the parking lights and the headlights. It is impossible to determine from the dashboard which lights are being used. This could result in driving at night with the parking lights on when headlights are needed. This is an unsafe condition. Similar cars at the dealer (herrnstein Mitsubishi) have the same problem. The headlight symbol should be used whenever the headlights are on.
