According to a news report posted on NYPost.com, GM has announced a new recall concerning defective headlights that can cause accidents. The recall notice states that “reflections” created by the recalled headlight housings cause the light to be too bright, reducing other drivers’ visibility. The recall could cause serious accidents leading to injuries and deaths. General Motors estimates that over 740,000 small SUVs are being recalled. GM asked US safety regulators to allow the vehicle manufacturer to avoid the massive and costly recall. However, the request was denied. GM’s recall affects its GMC Terrain SUVs manufactured from 2010 through 2017.
National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents reaffirm that the reflections caused by the headlight housings cause the headlight to produce too much light. Dan Flores, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration spokesperson, states that the NHTSA is finalizing a remedy for the affected motor vehicles. Mr. Flores did not state how long it would take to find a solution to the problem.
GM reported that it would notify affected owners starting April 23, 2022. GM’s stated that it had received one complaint so far.
