Cool Turn Signals

Just purchased a 2005 SRX in August, I've had to replace both turn signals because blown out bulb and fried socket and wiring. I agree this shouldn't happen but has anyone experienced this also? The bulb part doesn't bother me it's the burnt socket and wiring that causing the concern.///

was the damage there when you got the car?

The push in type exterior bulbs tend overheat the sockets, in most every brand of vehicle they are installed in. There is a special dielectric grease to reduce failures.
