Malibu 6-cyl

  • Automatic transmission
  • 44,000 miles
Both yellow daytime running light covers are melted. There is a burn mark surrounding the holes over each light bulb -- on both the right and the left side of the vehicle. The clear plastic shell around the headlight is discolored as a result of the excess heat.
