    My driver side front blinker bulb is out, and the rear one is on the fritz: is that an easy fix I could do myself with a trip to an auto-parts store and a youtube how-to video? Or is it more complicated?

    Can't be done, take it to the dealer. They should give you a loaner while the work is being done. Shouldn't take them more than a week i'd say.

    Should be easy to do.. just pull old out and replace with new.

    If you ask the parts store might do it for you
