General Motors is extending the warranty on thousands of older cars and SUVs that may have defective headlights.
This comes after the U.S. government began investigating complaints from owners that the headlights on some vehicles can suddenly go dark.
It turns out that the headlight module can fail when exposed to engine heat.
GM has notified dealers it will guarantee headlight control modules for 12 years or 150,000 miles, whichever comes first.
Vehicles covered by this increased warranty include:
– 2006-2009 GMC Envoy
– 2006 GMC Envoy XL
– 2006-2008 Buick Lacrosse
– 2006-2008 Buick Allure
– 2006 Buick Rainier
– 2006 Chevrolet Trailblazer EXT
– 2006-2009 Chevrolet Trailblazer
– 2006 and 2008 Pontiac Grand Prix
