General Motors is recalling approximately 316,000 older-model SUVs and sedans in North America – about 273,000 of which are in the U.S. – because of defective headlights, the Detroit Free Press reports.  

The low-beam headlamps and daytime running lamps might fail to illuminate, either intermittently or permanently, because of the defect. The recall affects 2006-2007 model-year Chevrolet TrailBlazers and GMC Envoys, 2006-MY TrailBlazer EXT and Envoy XL SUVs, 2006-2007 MY Buick Rainier SUVs, 2006-2009 MY Buick LaCrosse sedans, 2006-2008 MY Saab 9-7X SUVs and 2006-2008 Isuzu Ascender SUVs.

The manufacturing flaw has no effect on the high-beam headlamps, marker lamps, turn signals or fog lamps, according to the automaker.

    I own a 2007 GMC Envoy which is not yet on the recall list. I, for one, had an intermittent issue with my low beam headlights failing to illuminate. Had repairs done at my local mechanic months ago. What's up, GMC??? I really had a SERIOUS AND DANGEROUS situation... Thankful that no one was hurt! How about recalling my car and reimbursing me!
