General Motors (GM) is expanding a recall of Buicks and Pontiacs with defective low-beam headlights to include 180,504 more vehicles, the automaker said today. The recall now covers 493,265 vehicles total. Of the additional vehicles, 159,584 are being recalled in the U.S. Those are the 2005 Buick LaCrosse and the 2007 Pontiac Grand Prix. The other 20,920 vehicles are being recalled in Canada. Those vehicles include the 2005 Buick Allure – the Canadian iteration of the LaCrosse. Overheating in the electrical center in affected vehicles causes intermittent or permanent failure of the low-beam headlights. The lights can either stop working as the vehicle is moving or fail to turn on altogether, GM spokesman Alan Adler said in an email. There are no injuries or crashes linked to this issue so far, he said. The automaker is working on a permanent solution, but customers can have the part replaced as a temporary solution at any GM dealership. The Detroit News reported on the recall.
