Does Anyone else Have to Replace Bulbs This Much?

This seemed like it would be the only place to post it.
It seems like every time I turn around I have to replace bulbs, especially my back-up lights and my brake....
does anyone else seem to be constantly changing out bulbs? Or does my balt just have a bad wiring issue.

I haven't had that problem. Do you have moisture in any of the housings? That could be causing them to burn-out too.

Yes, check for moisture in the housing, one of the number one problems with our headlights, happened to me twice. But other than that no clue.

I'm at 60,000 on my 08 and never replaced a single bulb anywhere. You might, if you bought the car used, want to look at the fuse box and make sure all the fuses are the correct numbers.

Slim chance, but just a thought.

No problems here... I replaced all the bulbs in the rear with LED's at about 40,000km but never had a problem with the OE's from 0km's to 40K. Hope you can get it sorted... what a pain in the ass.

no moisture, but the idea with a different size fuse, ( because it was bought used) makes sense, thanks everyone!

Mine's a 07 and I haven't replaced a bulb yet, except for putting h.i.ds in 2 years ago...my rightside headlight has condensation in it tho, but I'm getting gen1 projectors soon so I'm not worried
