50% of all statistics are made up 65% of the time. The 2 cars I had previous to my Wrangler and DRL and auto-on lights. It was convenient in a purely lazt way, to never have to touch the lights. I don't miss any of the little conveniences in my Wrangler.After 4 years and 65,000 miles, my dlr's on my Impala never burned out. When I was in drivers ed I was told that dlr's were supposed to improve your visibility and therefore reduce the possibility of collisions by 20%. That's the logic behind motorcycles built since the 70's having their headlights hardwired on. Something about the lights jumping out at you.
