As you drive along a dark and winding road in your vehicle one of the things you’re counting on is for other vehicles to be able to spot you. This is thanks to your tail lamp bulbs. Having a good quality bulb that is visible from far away distances makes sure that you’re spotted even in unfavorable weather conditions. Just like with a normal light bulb, tail lamp bulbs do eventually burn out and when that happens it needs to be replaced promptly.

Here are some useful tips when choosing tail lamp bulbs:

  • Check your owners manual: You need to be aware of the make, model, and year of your vehicle. This information determines the kind of bulb you’ll need. Buying the wrong bulb means it may not work, or you may damage the actual light fixture.

  • Can you "upgrade: Determine whether you can “upgrade” your lights. The tail lamp bulb your vehicle comes with is the factory standard. It may be that you can actually upgrade it to a modern option, that is brighter, and can even last longer.

  • Driving conditions: Determine what your driving conditions are like. If you live in an area where there is lots of fog, snow, or rain, you may need a different kind of bulb than if you live somewhere that tends to see a lot of bright sunny days.

  • Type of bulb: You will then need to choose the actual kind of light bulb you want - either HID Xenon, or halogen. The HID (high-intensity discharge) Xenon bulbs are a modern option. They shine white and bright, and is meant to mimic daylight. Meanwhile halogen bulbs tend to last a good long time, and still shine quite brightly.

Keep in mind your tail lamp bulb is not an area you want to save money on, this is where you really want to invest in a good quality since your safety depends on it.

Toyota Prius - Tail Lamp Bulb Replacement (Driver Side, Passenger Side) - San Francisco, California
I spoke with customer service the day before to confirm that Alfred knew about my issue with my taillights. He was nover made aware, so did not have the part. I had to follow him to the store to purchase and have him fix it. Alfred is great, but this is the second time he has been sent to my home with either the wrong part or no part.
