Replaced the factory ones in my Neon at 105,000 miles with Silverstars
just to get more light (original bulbs were still fine). One Silverstar
burned out a year later. Wife crashed the car before the other could
burn out.

Only bulbs I replaced on that car for burning out was a couple tail
light bulbs. I was surprised.

I had to replace the tailgate brake light bulbs when I got the truck,
they were all burned out, and one taillight. I had one headlight bulb
explode for no apparent reason on the passenger side. Thankfully I'm
planning on replacing the housings so I don't need to worry about trying
to get all the glass shards out...
