Just a heads up, you need to check your tail lights. I looked into my tail lights (someone told me they were burning out) and noticed the plastic had melted & burned a hole in it. It was like this on both lights. I took it to the dealer the next day and this was the first they'd heard of this happening. Once they got it off the car and looked at it, they noticed the plastic had melted onto the bulb and this caused it to crack which could have potentially started a fire back there.

I drive with my lights on during the day and sit in traffic for over an hour each way 6 days a week. They thought that maybe since I'm sitting in stop & go traffic with my foot on the brake that it is causing excessive heat from the bulb, which caused the melt down. Either way, this is a design flaw that needs to be fixed ASAP.
