EXTERIOR LIGHTING

11/23/2016 - THREE FORKS, MT
SINCE 2014 I HAVE HAD TO REPLACE THE DRIVERS SIDE BRIGHT AND DIM HEADLIGHTS ABOUT EVERY 4-6 MONTHS AND ON THE PASSENGER SIDE ABOUT EVERY 8 - 10 MONTHS. IS THERE A RECALL WITH A PROBLEM WITH THE HEADLIGHTS? I GOT A WARNING TICKET THIS MORNING AND DRIVE TO WORK IN THE DARK AND HOME IN THE DARK. MY ROUND TRIP IS 140/MILES DAILY. THE VEHICLE HAS BEEN IN MOTION EACH TIME THEY HAVE GONE OUT. I HAD THE CASING CHECKED TO MAKE SURE IT WASN'T A PROBLEM WITH VIBRATION AND THAT WAS FINE. I NO LONGER GO TO THE TOYOTA DEALERSHIPS BECAUSE THEY ARE SO EXPENSIVE, BUT HAVE A SMALL SHOP CHANGE. I AM PICKING UP HEADLIGHTS FROM HELENA FORD/TOYOTA ON MY WAY HOME SO THEY CAN POP THEM IN WHEN I GET TO THREE FORKS, MT.
