Dodge tailights moisture

Hey guys.
So my dodge chally has moisture inside the tailights. Seems to be due to some small hairline cracka in the taillights that started under warranty.

What do you guys suggest i do. I hear these are exepensive to replace out or warranty, since my warranty expired last year

Kind of sucks that it's already happening on a 2015 to begin with though. I'm pretty big on using OEM parts - *especially* lighting - but if the OEM parts are going to fail so soon, maybe it's not really worth it in this case? I mean if you can get an aftermarket taillight for $150 (an example, no clue what they really cost) and it lasts 4 years, you'll be ahead of the game. :-)

Although, hopefully, a failure this quick is the exception and not the rule for the OEM parts... Does anyone know if this is a common issue with the 2015+ Challenger OEM taillights? Typically, OEM lights are much better quality than aftermarket (which is usually why they cost so much more).

Yeah definitely sucks.

I had these taillights replaced during warranty too, cause they went out.

Hmm.... Any chance they replaced the originals with aftermarket versions? I can't imagine that is the case with a factory warranty, but....

I have had it happen twice on two new GM vehicles with both fixed under warranty. Probably more common than anyone realizes across all makes. Steve Whites price is really very good on that tail lamp.
