this is the fourth time that i had to replace low lights it's getting to be a pain already!!!!!!!
I have replaced so many light bulbs it is crazy. It seems moisture gets into the light bulb area which may be one of the problems. Something must not seal correctly. This is how it has been since i owed the car. It was used but only had 24k miles and was taken very good care of. The previous owner stated he had to replace bulbs several times. It seems to affect the right side
exterior rear light bulbs need to be replaced often
Replaced front headlights twice. They cant seem to stay on.
Bulbs continue to burn out about every 3 months
Replace headlight bulbs frequently
I have replaced the headlights 6 times in the last 9 months. Now it is more than replacing the bulb. A new bulb does not work
