    i have a brand new 08 taco and my right headlight burnt out already that pisses me off just curious if any of you had this problem yet also it is cold as hell outside 6 below zero to be exact do think that this could be a factor for the light to go out i would appreciate the input

    For the bulb to go that fast it must have been defective, I'd go back to the dealer and ask the service manager to have it replaced..... If he wants to keep you returning to him as a loyal customer. :cool:

    It happens. I have to laugh sometimes at what "pisses off" some folks. Better to be pissed off than pissed on, I guess.

    Look at it as an upgrade opportunity.

    I've tried 30 or even 40 below zero with no problems. You may have had a defective or damaged filament that finally snapped like the stupid Alliance.

    My wife's old car had foglights that she never used. I turned them on a few months after she got it and one of the bulbs was burnt. Right from the factory. Sometimes you're the pigeon, and sometimes you're the statue.

    Ya my right fog light also went out. I got my oiled changed at the dealership and when I got home I noticed that it was out. They replaced it with no problems.
