Default dome light lamp burns out frequently

Is this a common problem with Toyotas. Our '98 Avalon has had to have this lamp replaced about 3 times in the last 18 months. Any suggestions?

Thanks,
Lynn

I would look to see the the fixture is vibrating excessively.

Buy a different brand of bulb. I have seen some bulbs with an extra
filament support (Phillips?). Also, bulbs that burn out repeatedly
is sometimes an indication of system voltage being on the high side
(16+ volts).

Also if the bulbs used came from the same package, it might have been
dropped at some point shortening the life of the bulbs. I dropped a package
of bulbs once unloading it from my trunk and they all worked but for a very
short time.

You dropped them from your trunk? So you ARE an elephant!
Shouldn't put bulbs in your trunk. They can break and cause
bleeding.

Was your trunk already unlocked at the time?

Well if you want to know the details, the package was caught in my 2001
Avalon piece of crap cargo tangle it up net and in the process of untangling
it I dropped the package of bulbs. Wasn't going to make this about my piece
of crap Avalon but if you insist..... there you go.

Art ... you worship that piece of crap that really belongs to your
wife. If that thing was a dominatrix, you'd strip down to your
leather belts and drive it around town. LOL
