The dealer says the headlights are adjusted correctly but high beam is not good, how can I correct this?

    Not good in what respect, not bright enough ?

  • Yes not bright enough on high beam.

  • In fact oncoming traffic don't ask me to dim them when approaching. Can I get different bulbs?

    Yes not bright enough on high beam.

    Over time headlight bulbs tend to dim (before they fail). You could try just replacing them with similar bulbs or replace with brighter ones (just be aware the brighter ones may very well not have as long a life).

    Just as a for instance here is some options from one manufacturer

  • I have had a 2008 Yukon and still have a 2012 Yukon. No matter what you do, the high beams are just not that good. I have replaced the factory bulbs with high end (extra bright) bulbs and they showed no improvement. As a side note, even through the bulbs are not pricey, they are almost impossible to install and are best installed by the dealer or experienced mechanic.
