So I just bought my '11 3 SGT a week and a half ago. Has at 12 month bumper to bumper warranty on it. Last night I come to find a bunch of moisture inside my headlight assembly and the projector not working. I kind of almost expect them to say oh a bulb burnt out, but I am more worried about the fact that there is water in there. I feel like that the seals should be replaced to prevent the moisture from coming in. There was a lot in there too. Any ideas if I'll get stuck paying out of pocket?

There have been issues on here about moisture inside the headlight. I think they got the headlight replaced iirc. Be prepared to fight it though

I will fight it, ive had the car for 10 days. With a warranty, I shouldn't have to pay for it

If it full of moisture like you say then the warranty will cover it. Take photos of the moisture as sometimes the heat of the headlight will dry up the moisture, and by the time you get to the dealer there is nothing to see..

12 month bumper to bumper...? I'm pretty sure it's 36 months and 36,000miles bumper to bumper which ever comes first.

Forgot about used, yeah I'm sure he got 12 month because it is a used car.
The car according to the OP is a 2011 so it will have the balance of the 3 year 36K warranty.
