Not fixed - both headlights intermittently blow out and need to be replaced due to an electrical issue within the car.
In the past year I've had to replace three headlight bulbs and a running light. This past weekend, both headlights went out again in addition to another running light
Not fixed.
wires inside headlights seem to degrade the wire covering like they melt or disintegrate. Pray i can fix these problems b4 they cause a fire
I purchased both headlights 11.30.14 and on 3.23.15 one lamp blew and the other blew on 3.26.15. This was after replacing both within the last year.
