Does the Ody have cornering lights? I rode in a 1996 Quest that has them, and they really help when making turns at night.

Just a thought-- The Honda Fog Lights can double as your cornering lights since the light beams are spread more to the side of the car.

That makes it easier to cost justify too - now it's only $300 for fog lights and $300 for turning lights!!

Wow. How cool is THAT? Are they just always on with the headlights or do you turn them on with a switch like the fogs? Anybody know? I've never even seen a car with these.

The old full size american luxury cars all had cornering lights - big white marker lights in front of the front fender but on the SIDE of the car.
They illuminate with the turn signal switch to light the direction you will be turning towards.

Thanks for the info.

Nissan Quest has cornering lights. The corresponding light turns on only when your turn signal is on. It is pretty cool (and useful) indeed.

I agree with MarioB. I have the fog lights and tried turning them off and what a difference. Not only is there a great deal more light on the road, but the light spreads far enough to the sides to help see things that might be in the path of the turn. I have cornering lights on my Isuzu Trooper and the amount of light from the Honda fog lights provides almost as much light to the sides.

That's my $.02 worth.

REPLY FOR DVL:


I also have experienced the cornering lights while driving the Nissan Quest from Florida to PA. IT DOES make a difference and helps at night.

Funny, I was looking at the ones that LAGREAT has and was wondering how or who could put those on our van when it arrives.

You'll need to cut holes into the bumper.And also hope there are good mounting pints in the rear,and that the kit comes with a bracket of some sort.

My '69 Pontiac had cornering lights and I have missed them. They were very low on the front fenders and really illuminated the area to the side of the car. It was really helpful on dark nights on city streets. I once missed seeing someone in a crosswalk on a very black night and hit her. If I had had the cornering lights on that car, I'm sure I would have seen the pedestrian in my path. Luckily, I was only going about 10 mph and barely bumped the woman before I was able to stop.
