Complaint - Exterior Lighting

I HAD JUST BOUGHT MY CAR ON FEBRUARY 19, 2014 AND NOTICED A HEADLIGHT OUT ON THE WAY HOME. I CALLED THE DEALERSHIP AND THEY SAID THEY WOULD REPLACE IT. I TOOK IT IN ON FEBRUARY 26, 2014 BUT THEY DIDN'T HAVE A REPLACEMENT BULB. THEY WERE GOING TO CALL ME WHEN IT CAME IN. THE DRIVER'S SIDE HEADLIGHT WOULD RANDOMLY SHUT OFF. ON MARCH 10, 2014 ON THE WAY HOME JUST AFTER DUSK THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME SLAMMED ON THEIR BRAKES TO AVOID A DEER. I SLAMMED ON MY BRAKES TO AVOID HITTING THEM AND MY LIGHTS JUST WENT OFF. I COULD NOT TELL HOW CLOSE I WAS TO THE CAR IN FRONT OF ME AND HAD NO CLUE IF ALL MY LIGHTS WERE OFF AND WHETHER THE CAR FOLLOWING ME COULD SEE ME. I WAS SCARED. I MEAN I WAS REALLY SCARED. I TURNED THE LIGHTS OFF AND BACK ON AND THEY WORKED. THE DEALERSHIP CHANGED THE DRIVER'S SIDE HEADLIGHT ON MARCH 13, 2014 AND TOLD ME THAT A SHORT IN IT HAD CAUSED THE HEADLIGHTS TO SHUT OFF. I AM SCARED TO DRIVE AT NIGHT. ON MAY 14, 2014 THE PASSENGER SIDE HEADLIGHT SHUT OFF FOR THE FIRST TIME SINCE THE INCIDENT. I AM AFRAID A SHORT IN IT WILL SHUT OFF BOTH LIGHTS SO I ONLY DRIVE AT NIGHT WHEN I ABSOLUTELY CAN'T KEEP FROM IT. THIS CAR IS GOING TO GET ME KILLED IF I DRIVE AT NIGHT.
