Buick has been known as one of GM\'s luxury marques for decades. From this line came the Electra, Skylark, Century, Regal, and Riviera. These splendid vehicles wave a banner of rich automotive heritage whenever they are driven on the road. At the turn of the 21st century, the line-up saw the arrival of the Buick LaCrosse. The luxury car entered the market to further strengthen the brand\'s presence today. On the downside, people found out that there are still a few bugs to address in the car.
Whenever people drive on the road, they need to have a good look at the surroundings to be able to make correct calculations and maneuvers with their vehicles. This is why it is very important to have adequate lighting on the road. During daytime, this can be provided by the sun. But it does not always work that way. During gloomy weather, nighttime, and drives through tunnels, sunlight will not be able to do much. In these cases, illumination should come from artificial sources like the car headlights. These lighting assemblies are made and mounted on the front end of vehicles to properly shine beams on the road. There are dedicated low and high beams to control the direction and intensity of the light coming from the car. The low beam is used on roads where there are other cars around while the high beam is usually applied when driving on open roads with poor or no lighting at all.
It has been noted that earlier productions of the Buick LaCrosse have trouble with their headlights. For a luxury car meant to provide comfort and reliability, this might come off as an inconvenience. Owners came to arrive at the problem of dysfunctional low beam lights. While the high beams are still working well, it would not be appropriate to use it all throughout the drive. Being directed with strong light can actually be blinding and disrespectful to other drivers on the road. This can render the driver disoriented and might actually end up in a bad accident. Some drivers would encounter this problem in the middle of the road. While cruising to their destinations, the low beam would suddenly turn off. The driver would then end up pulling over and switching to high beams.
Once the owners get back safely to their garages, the first thing that they would do is diagnose the issue. The possible culprits being looked at are the bulbs and relays being used on the assembly. However, it was found that this only fixes the problem temporarily. General Motors first took action on this issue in November 2014. It recalled over 316,000 units of the 2006-2009 Buick LaCrosse along with a few other models under the GM umbrella. A year after, the automotive giant expanded its recall to about 180,000 Buicks and Pontiacs to correct the faulty low beam headlights.
