Problems for General Motors are far away from ending. The famous company has decided to recall no less than 194,107 Buicks in China. Apparently, these cars have a headlight issue which determined the famous car maker to announce the recall.
Shanghai General Motors will recall Buick Excelle GT cars as it seems that they have an issue which does not allow in some cases the high beam to be turned off. The announcement was made through an official statement that was published by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine.
This new recall regards cars produced by General Motors between October 2009 and July 2012. This incident is treated by GM separately. This means that the company has not included this recall in the global recalls it recently announced. Naturally, the most debated issue in GM cars, which has caused a lot of controversy, is the ignition switches problem.
Recently, General Motors has announced the recall of no less than 20 million cars. The CEO of the famous company said that more recalls can be announced in the future, as GM discovered more issues in its cars. The newest recall of Buick Excelle GT cars in China came as costumer complaints revealed that there might be an issue in these vehicles.
Following the complaints, General Motors decided to inspect the potential issue. This is the reason why it is recalling its cars. GM will inspect the high beam light bulbs in its Buicks and will have them replaced, if needed. GM addressed the issue soon after finding out that it might be experienced by drivers. Being unable to turn off the high beam can lead to collisions and can turn out being very dangerous for drivers.
It is a well-known fact that the ignition issue in GM cars has caused no less than 13 deaths and 54 crashes. General Motors was accused of failing to recall its cars and have the issue resolved sooner, to avoid all these crashes. Earlier this week, GM has decided to stop the sale of 2013 and 2014 Chevrolet Cruze cars, as they seem to have an issue with defective airbags.
