Much has been said about engine problems and chipped body paints, but car owners have experienced problems with their headlights as well. This is because headlight covers are usually the first parts of your vehicle that will show the effects of extreme weather conditions. Headlights could turn yellow or cloudy after a prolonged time of driving and parking in a way that exposes them directly to the sun.
