I have a 2001 Santa Fe and both fog lights recently burned out. I've
been pricing them on the internet and can't find 'em for less than
$105. Is it the case that they are only sold as a fog light 'kit,'
and that you can't just buy a replacement lamp for the housing?
Also, I just had to replace the transmission on the car this past
spring. It had approx. 80K on it at the time. I was a bit surprised
that it needed replacement at this point, as I have always maintained
it well...You now, oil changes, got the timing belt & water pump
replaced as part of overall maint., had the transmission fluid flushed
and replaced last fall, etc. Is this typical for a Hyundai? I love
the car, believe me. But I guess I was expecting it to at least make
it to 100k before having to face replacing it.
Anyways, I have a great mechanic who did a wonderful job putting in
the new/used one and the car runs great again. But I'm determined to
exhaust every avenue to try and avoid paying two hundred bucks for a
couple of darn fog lights, lol! Unless you all tell me it's a lost
cause, in which case I will bite the bullet and pay for 'em. I was
also thinking of heading out to a junkyard and seeing if there's a
totaled out Santa Fe that might have a couple of fog lights I can
What do you all think? Thanks in advance,
