Complaint - Exterior Lighting

ONE HEADLIGHT WENT OUT, THEN THE NEXT. I WAS DRIVING ON THE INTERSTATE AFTER DARK AND REALIZED THAT BOTH OF MY HEADLIGHTS HAD GONE OUT WHILE I WAS DRIVING. TURNED SWITCH OFF AND THEN BACK ON (I ALSO PUT FOG LAMPS ON) AND THEY WORKED FOR A SHORT TIME, THEN THEY EACH DIMMED AND WENT OUT. I CANNOT SAFELY DRIVE AT NIGHT AND AM UNABLE TO CHANGE THE LIGHTS MYSELF. I TOOK THE CAR TO THE DEALER AND THE COST QUOTED WAS NEARLY $600 TO REPLACE THE HID HEADLAMPS BECAUSE THE BUMPER MUST BE REMOVED TO REPLACE THE BULBS. THE DEALER SEEMED UNAWARE OF THE ISSUE UNTIL I MENTIONED THE CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT IN 2011 AGAINST TOYOTA FOR THIS VERY ISSUE.

Now lower prices on ALL K&N products. Save up to 15% / $85.
