anyone have issues with condensation or fogging over in the headlights at all?

when i picked mine up from the dealer i noticed both lamps had some moisture in them.

I noticed some in the left headlamp after washing the car one day. Usually, there is a gortex patch applied to the lamp. When this is not applied correctly or peels back, then you get moisture intrustion. When it happens again, take it to the dealer and get the lamps replaced. Mine did it the once and never again... so still waiting.

Mine did it once when I first got it, but has never happened again. Mine was in the *passenger side* headlight. There again, I've never washed mine since I had it. I suspect that if it is going to happen, it will happen during washing or extremely high humidity. Seems to me that they should be sealed though.

I believe that quite a ways back some dealers had replaced the headlight bezels for same and /or similar conditions.

UPDATE: I just did a search and cannot find any threads discussing this.

I don't want to be rude, crude, & socially unacceptable, but does anything ever go out or break that is covered by the GM warranty?

Thats pretty crappy, you would think they should be sealed so as to prevent corrosion and 'water spots'. I would have a fit if mine did that.
