My low-beam headlamps went out on January 9, 2015, which I was not aware of until a police officer pulled me over indicating to me that I had no headlights. I had to drive home with my high beams on. I had to leave work early all last week in order to get home before dark. I went on line yesterday and typed in my make model and year of my vehicle and found out that there is a recall for my type of vehicle for the headlamps. Contacted Buick and was informed that they can not fix this problem yet because there is no "official" recall for this problem. This is a danger when someone's headlights go out all of the sudden while you are driving at night; this could cause a major accident which could involve lives. They informed me I have to wait to get the "official" notice before they can fix the problem or I can bring in my vehicle and have it looked and fixed at my expense. This is a serious problem and should be taken care ASAP by Buick at their expense, not the expense of the driver of the vehicle informing them that this problem has already occured? please look into this matter and let me know how soon can I get this problem fixed. Thank you.

Failure Date: 12/04/2014

In early December 2014, the low-beam headlights stopped working permanently. Replacing the hdm module does no rectify the situation and the fuses and lamps are in good working condition. I have been driving 7 months with high-beams only, which endangers other drivers and puts me at risk of head-on collision. Other people have indicated their cars have burned because of this situation. I first noticed gm's public acknowledgment of the defect in December, but nearly 7 months later, they have neither notified me nor announced a way to fix the problem. My dealership has no remedy to offer. In one week my state inspection expires. After that I will not be able to drive the car or sell it.

We have had the vehicle since 10/16/2012 and just recently noticed the problem. Our left headlight will go out. The only way we noticed this was when we drove up to a store and noticed the reflection in the glass. We had the 2010 Buick serviced last week and mentioned it to the serviceman; he said he found nothing. . I heard approx 2 weeks ago on t. V. That the (---?--2009) Buick Lacrosse head light or lights would go out. Should this include 2010 also. Since our lights are on continuously, this happens day or night.

My wife was taking her father to the hospital when she the low beam headlights were to come on they did not. She had to drive the rest of the way with only her parking lights on. This is not the first time this has happened in 2013 we had to replace a relay under the hood in the fuse box for the same issue. This time we took it into our local parts shop to replace the relay and found out that the fuse box had melted together and have had it towed to be repaired, this was on a 2007 Buick la cross. I understand this is not the first time this has happened this type of vehicle and I believe it should be repaired by the dealer and a safety recall started.

I was driving on interstate at night 65 mph and my headlights automatically went off. They would not come back on. I drove with high beams until I could get off an exit. Sat there and tried to get them on. . . No luck. Finally they came back on and 15 minutes later they went off again. I had to drive home with my high beams on for 35 minutes. Took it in to gm certified service dept. And they said there was nothing wrong with the low beams. Driving home from service dept, they went out again !!!!!! what is the problem with this?. Very very dangerous and cannot drive my car because I am not sure when the lights will go out. . . . Thunderstorms, night time, snow, etc. . . . I need my low beam lights !!!!
