Default '02 Bonne Tail lights seem to burn out often, Anyone else?

I notice that the taillights and rear marker lights burn out frequently on my '02 Bonne. I have also noticed other Bonne'* with burned out tail lights also.

When I look at the sockets, the white plastic is turning brown from the heat. I am sure they are getting too hot and burning out prematurely.

Anyone else have this issue?

Thanks

twice for me, the inners are usually the ones I see. My drivers inner was the first to go than about 2 or 3 months later the passengers inner went, after that I just changed them all.

check your BRAKE lights as well. the Aurora has this problem too. my parking lights are all fine, but all FOUR of my brake lights are burned out right now. (I just noticed this.. I can't believe how dangerous this is)

Only ever replaced a couple of bulbs over the span of 130,000km in my '02 SE. No real problems here.
