Taillights burn out frequently. This is a major inconvenience since my nearest Volvo retailer is 45 miles away and the bulbs can be pricey.

This seems to just be a Volvo thing....I have had many and all do this. I have started buying the bulb grease you can get at automotive parts stores and buying one of each type of bulb, which I recommend that any Volvo owner do. It is just one of those things and no one can ever explain it.....feh!

Bulbs burn out. Sylvian is the only manufacture. But if you research its voltage. Sylvian says don't use their american version. Order ones from Germany.
