I am not sure what post you are referring to, but as others have mentioned, I received a letter from American Honda that extends the warranty on the DRLs on my 2017 Touring Coupe to 10 years, unlimited mileage. It also had a form I could send in for reimbursement if I had them replaced before I received the letter. Fortunately my DRLs have not been affected.What, no one reads the post?
He’s referring to the post above his, as that member stated they had received the notice. That person’s post just reiterated the purpose of this entire thread, but as if the news from the Honda letter was something new.I am not sure what post you are referring to, but as others have mentioned, I received a letter from American Honda that extends the warranty on the DRLs on my 2017 Touring Coupe to 10 years, unlimited mileage.

Low/high beams and turn signals as those are part of the whole headlight assembly.Just had the left side replaced this morning. Had the right side replaced a month ago. At least both sides are the same color now. When they start to turn yellow, you know they are about to go. Went to the local dealership this time, and was pleasantly surprised that it took less than an hour, and there was no up-sell this time. The other dealership took more than two hours, and tried to up-sell other maintenance work (besides the fact they left the coolant reservoir sitting against the fan shroud and exhaust). I asked but none of them seem to know if Honda plans to make changes to the headlights, so the DRLs last longer. I don't mind having new headlights every 2 and a half years, but it seems like this is going to cost them a lot of money over 10 years, especially on the touring headlights. I'm not exactly fond of sitting at dealerships either. Anybody know if they plan to make changes, so they last longer?
Not to sidetrack this thread, but I’d actually be interested in knowing if geographical location/temperature zone has any impact on the life of the DRLs. I live in San Antonio, TX and daytime temperatures stay well above the mid-90s throughout the majority of the year. It’s logical, IMO, that higher ambient temperatures MAY have cause the DRLs to prematurely fail, especially if you spend a lot of time on the road.I'm thinking the longer you drive, especially in hot weather while only the DRLs are on, the hotter they get. If you only take short drives, they probably last longer. I've been taking a lot of 300-400 mile trips every weekend (many times 3 hours without stopping), and it's been hot as hell down here (97 today). I'm sure that takes it's toll on them.
Yeah. Mine went out about 30k mi ago. Both were replaced. All good on current ones.Steve16Accord Have your DRLs gone out?
It just seems logical to me that if you leave the DRLs on for hours, and the temperature is 97 degrees F, it would speed up the melting of the DRL tube. But I could be wrong, and the LED itself is 99% of the reason the DRLs burn out or melt the tube.
