Recall Alert: 2012 Buick Regal


GM is recalling 3,633 model-year 2012 Buick Regal sedans because their parking lights may not illuminate, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

In the affected vehicles, which were manufactured from Feb. 22, 2011, through Feb. 22, 2012 and have high-intensity-discharge headlights, a software glitch could prevent the parking lights from illuminating when they or the headlights are turned on. This decreases the visibility of the car on the road and could lead to a crash.

Buick started notifying owners Monday, and dealers will reprogram the body control module free of charge. Owners can call GM at 800-521-7300 or NHTSA's vehicle safety hotline at 888-327-4236 for more info.
