Failure Date: 02/06/2016

The headlights on my car work intermittently. It has been many occasions when were driving at night and in daytime when all of a sudden the lights go out. There has been several times at night the lights have went out and we weren't aware that they weren't on which is extremely dangerous. When the lights go out we have to utilize the high beams in order to see at night. This first started in the summer of 5/2012 and continues to happen today,.

The regular lights wiil go out while driving, day or night. Sometimes the headlights will not come at all or only one side (driver or passenger side) will come on. I have to often drive around at night using my high-beams. The problem is getting worst, as the lights will not come on for day. Buick service center wants to charge $600 to replace headlights and relays, even though it is a known issue for cars of the same make, model and year.

Low beam headlights can go out at any time while driving. Started happening about 7/2013. Would only drive during day/ had module replaced a year ago when recall notice came out and had lights for a about 6 months with no problem. Was driving going around a corner a couple of months ago, lights went out and I went into ditch causing a bad fender dent and breaking my windshield. Lights can come and go at any time. Thank god, no one was hurt. This could be a major problem. You can use brights, but that would cause blinding the oncoming traffic.

Twice now, my headlights will not illuminate. The first time it rectified itself. This time it has not rectified. The problem occurred when I manually turned off the headlights. I put the car in drive and manually turned them back on and nothing happened. Running lights and high beams do function (14v755000) but I am irritating a lot of drivers with the high beams on. What can I do until this recalled part is available? I have tried to get it serviced at my gm dealer but they have no recall information. So my guess the going to charge me hourly to diagnose a problem that they probably already know about.

I bought this lovely car and thought I got a great deal-now I wonder what I was thinking!! the car drove home from the dealership beautifully, but after 5 days of owning it I was driving down a major highway at 70mph and the headlights shut off. I now have that problem any time I drive at night. The passenger air bag light goes off and on while the seat is occupied and last night I looked outside, only to discover that my headlights were on. Nothing I did would make them stay off other than disconnecting the battery. The electrical on this car is obviously a nightmare and I will be looking in to trading this car as soon as possible :(.
