2011 Jeep Compass -- headlight aiming

My parents have a 2011 Jeep Compass, and they constantly have people flashing their headlights at night to them.

They brought in the Jeep to our local dealer and was informed the headlights are not able to be adjusted. I simply can't believe that a vehicle could be built with non-adjustable headlights!

Does anyone know if they are adjustable, and if so -- what is the procedure for adjusting them?

--Mark

I believe the headlights on the compass are the exact same parts used on the new grand Cherokee not that that helps too much but maybe you can try to find more info on how wk2 owners adjust their headlights

I'm sure they can be adjustable. Go to another dealership to see if they can help. Your head lights maybe fine..... people flash me in my moms car and she has factory HIDs. I"ve been flashed if I'm going down hill and the other car is going up the hill.
