The headlights on the 2021 Palisade are very dangerous at night! You have a black blob on the road at all times and can not see in the oncoming lane!
Very Dangerous and a law suit waiting to happen.
Sad Hyundai knows about this issue and has not changed their lighting!
Note these pictures do not do justice it is worse in person!

No, it isn't an issue and it is actually better than on other cars. Please read this, as it explains it in details:

Cannot agree...I feel the headlights are great...by far the best I have ever owned...and I have had a lot of new vehicles...

I admitedly am still waiting to pick up our Palisade, but I dont see the issue even in your pictures. The tiny indent at the top line of the light?

I don't see the problem either, but some folks can find problems on anything. Ha ha. This vehicle has amazing headlights IMO, and I've owned dozens of new vehicles, and many way more expensive than the Pali. Just like with any other vehicle, unless something is truly dangerous or unsafe (which is NOT the case here), you just have to get used to the idiosyncrasies of each vehicle. And of course you could always adjust/change/modify them, if possible :).

Sorry tried that… Hyundai said they will not adjust. They even have a bulletin out and they know this issue and said they will not adjust or fix.
And living on a country road in Minnesota… seeing in the other lane of traffics is kinda a big deal as there are many animals that run out.
I am not city driving at night… if that was the case this wouldn’t be a problem!
It’s a major liability waiting to happen!

Just wait till you drive it!
Do you live in the city or the country?

I live in a rural area, but travel into town for work. And I cant wait to drive ours when it comes in. But again, can you confirm where this blob is? I dont see any issues in your pictures. You clearly do, and sorry for that... Perhaps an issue on your palisade as it seems others are not having the issue. I hope you find a dealer that can identify your issue!

This isn't a flaw or design error. It's purposely designed like this to avoid blinding oncoming traffic.

It's not DANGEROUS and there won't be any lawsuits coming from it.

If you're driving in rural areas then turn on your auto-dimming high beams.

Agreed. But if you’re that concerned about it and it causes you distress I’d consider trading it in on something else.

Drove around quite a bit last night, and I completely agree that this is designed to lessen the glare for oncoming traffic, which also is safer for us. This 100% seems like a situation where you just need to use your high beams like pretty much every car out there. This is not a safety or legal issue in the slightest. The headlights are fantastic.

Unfortunately once a person has a car, trading it in on another one, is a expensive proposition. Basically, I spent 50K on mine, 4500 miles later, what can I get out of it? Whatever the hit is, it is a BIG hit. Who wants to pay good money for a slightly used car - even though it is still in brand new condition?

You might be pleasantly surprised by the value. Punch your car into Carvana and see what they’ll pay for it.

2020 palisades with 15k miles are selling for over msrp on a new one right now where I live. Check into it, the semiconductor shortage is driving up used car prices as well. I guess its all about the options you have maybe? Very strange though.
