I just returned from a long highway trip and half way home, I realized that there was some condensation on the Inside of my headlight. I only have 1700 miles on the car (all but 150 were from the trip). Is this covered under warrenty or what is wrong? Thanks for your help.

i had some condensation after driving in the rain after i took my headlights apart and painted the bezels, i just made sure everything was on correctly and tight, and the condensation went away, i believe they are designed to get rid of condensation.

if your headlights have not been touched at all (i mean u opened them to paint them or anythin), then yes just take it to dealer n have them replace it...i had that with one of my tails...it was like that when i bought it...and they replaced it under warranty...

Oil Leaks!!! Non-Sense!!! That is just sweat from all the horsepower!!!

I bought an 04 2 weeks ago (wagon) and I went through a car wash and had it but it went away within an hour.

Yeah every time i wash my car with one of those high pressure wands at your average car wash place I get it. Make sure all your bulb sockets are tight and if they are then take it back to the dealer.
