2005 Sonota headlights need replacing every 3 months

My 2005 Sonata goes through headlights every 3-6 months. This is a very expensive this a problem others are having?

Also the clear plastic is fogged from the inside making the light very dim. I can actually drive with my brights on without oncoming traffic flashing me.

    Hard to say what's up here but I'd have the voltage checked at the alternator, and also check the voltage at the connectors for the headlights. Another thing, the headlight assembly should not be loose or allow the bulb to be jiggled around. And of course one should never touch the bulb with your bare fingers when installing it.

    Presuming the voltages are okay, the connectors are not corroded or damaged, the bulbs are being installed correctly and are firmly in place, then I'd spring for OEM bulbs rather than aftermarket ones, if that's what you've been buying. Some aftermarket bulbs are pretty shabby.
