    I purchased a set of Silverstar headlights a few months ago and installed them in my 2008 Taco. Not long after that, one of them went out. Then, a couple weeks late the other one went out. When I installed them, I was sure not to touch the bulb, so I know that wasn't the cause. I think they just suck! After looking over the packaging, I noticed that they don't have any sort of warranty either. No body by Silverstar headlights from Sylvania!

    Silverstar Ultra's last longer, but we're lucky to get a year out of them in my wifes Accord. I hate buying them, but they're the only lights I've found that provide as much light as they do.

    Silver Stars come with a 12 month warranty

    You have to save your receipt and the package

    They will give you a new set if one burns out
