    Over the last week or so I've noticed 6 different Sonata's driving around
    (could be '07 too) that all had the drivers side brake light burned out.
    Today, a guy at work was behind my vehicle and told me mine was burned out
    too. No problem changing the bulb, but I am wondering if this is some kind
    of design flaw or sommon problem?

    I've got an 06 and had to have it replaced in less than a year. I
    thought it was unusual to have the bulb go out so soon but didn't
    really think about it being a common problem until your post.

    I have yet to have mine go out, but I am considering replacing the lamp
    assemblies with the LED version. Turn signal and reverse lamps are still
    used....

    Most likely, they're just poorly made bulbs.

    Possibly, but why would they only burn out on one side? Probably
    coincidence, just seemed unusual to me.

    We own a 2006 Sonata bought in December 2005 and the lights are still
    working fine.

    Yea, mine too. Bought Feb 2005.

    Maybe he is jamming on the brakes too hard. :)

    I'm pretty sure you mean Feb. 2006, since mine was one of the first off the
    assembly line and purchased in September of 2005. I never jam on the
    brakes for fear of glowing the rotors :p

    Yes yes, it was Feb 2006. Born on date was Jan 29, 2006.
    I never jam on the brakes because I fear I will stress those weak
    brake light filaments. :)
