Are the brake lights on the '04 actually LED, or just made to resemble LED units? Neither the brochure at the dealer nor the owner's manual says a thing about the construction of the brake lights, or the replacement of brake-light bulbs. There is the occasional reference to "LED brake lights" in car reviews posted on the Internet, but that's it. (I had an opportunity to examine the brake-light unit without its cover, on an '04 that had been totalled and was sitting on my dealer's back lot. It consists of six or so small bulbs on essentially a horizontal plane, the light from which is directed rearward by six multi-dimpled reflectors positioned at a 45 degree angle to the bulbs. The resulting display LOOKS like a multi-faceted LED display, but . . . . ?)
