Vehicles Affected: Approximately 160,000 model-year 2005 Buick LaCrosse and 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix sedans

The Problem: The headlamp driver module may overheat and fail, causing intermittent or permanent loss of low-beam function; this reduces the driver?s ability to see the roadway and the vehicle?s visibility to oncoming traffic, increasing the risk of a crash. This latest action is an expansion of a November 2014 recall of about 273,000 GM sedans and SUVs for the same problem. The automaker is unaware of any crashes or injuries related to the problem.

The Fix: Dealers will replace the headlamp module with a new one of the existing part until a permanent solution can be determined.

What Owners Should Do: GM has not yet announced a notification schedule. Owners can call the automaker at 800-521-7300 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration?s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236, or go to www.safercar.gov, for more info.
