Buick Rendezvous Headlights
Buick Rendezvous headlights come in a variety of different styles, each slightly different than the next. Several types of bulbs can be used with each. Cleaning your headlights routinely can help to increase their longevity.What are the headlight styles?
Headlights for the Buick Rendezvous SUV vary in style and design. Choose the right headlights for your vehicle based on model year, bulb type, and aesthetic preferences.
- Factory-edition headlights typically pair a lightly colored, thin bezel with a clear lens. Factory editions come in a wide variety of shapes and styles to suit lots of different Buick Rendezvous model years. This light, bright silhouette allows beams to project an adequate distance in front of the vehicle to maintain visibility and safety.
- Mixed-model headlights allow for different styles of bezels to be combined with a variety of lenses. In addition to clear, headlights come in light and dark grey, amber, and other tints. Bezels are also available in a range of thicknesses, sizes, and finishes, including metallic and matte. This category gives the Buick Rendezvous owner the option to cater headlights to their particular aesthetic taste.
- Projector headlights come in DRL bar, halo, and LED editions. Each of these headlight styles is designed to narrow beams of light so that they shine further in front of the Rendezvous than usual. This can be especially advantageous if the weather is hazy, precipitating, or generally poor. DRL bar lights use a bar at the top to narrow beams while halo styles use a circle around the middle of the headlight. Oftentimes, these types of headlights shine bright white or slightly blue or purple. LED projector headlights denote the style of lightbulb utilized.
- Fog lights and daytime running lights are other types of lights mounted on the front of the Buick Rendezvous for visibility purposes. Fog lights are situated low on the front of the vehicle to shine up from below any haze or fog. This eliminates some of the glare that would be created by standard headlights due to physical positioning. Daytime running lights are on all the time to let other drivers know that the Buick Rendezvous is there. This helps to avoid potential collisions and accidents.
Halogen, incandescent, and LED bulbs are all options for powering Buick headlights. Halogen bulbs burn bright white and use a quartz component in the middle to protect the bulb’s filament. LED lights are the smallest of the three and burn brightly without consuming much electricity. Incandescent bulbs are slightly larger and burn a little softer than either LED or halogen styles.How do you care for headlights appropriately?
The headlights on your car can be wiped down with a soft cloth dipped in a mixture of soap and warm water. Once the debris is gone, rinse headlights with clean water and dry them with another soft cloth. Remove any hard water stains on lights with a mixture of three parts baking soda and one part white vinegar. Spread the mixture directly onto the headlights and wait until it hardens before rinsing it away.
