Low beam headlights on both sides stopped functioning. High beams still work. Verified that bulbs and/or fuses were not the problem. Same issue as NHTSA recall 15v519000 gm recall 14291. Contacted gm who claimed my particular car was not included in recall. As mentioned in previous comments, that makes no sense. If its the same problem as other recalled cars had why isn't my car also recalled? in my opinion gm needs to recall all cars with this problem or supply a valid reason why some cars are excluded from the recall.

On two occasions, the headlights stopped working while I was driving at night. Both times occurred when I was driving under 35 miles per hour and had been driving for less than five miles. The first time (February 2016), I stopped, turned the car off and back on and the lights came back on. The second time (April, 2016), I stopped, turned off the ignition and turned it back on. The lights did not come back on. I turned on the ignition and tried the high beams, and they illuminated. When I arrived at home, I tried the regular lights again, but they still failed to work. I found a recall online for this situation for the make, model, and year o f my car (#15v519000), so I contacted Buick customer service. I was told that my car did not have this recall on it. I believe that the fact that I have the same problem on the same car model, make, and year should should qualify my car for the recall for this serious safety issue.

Nhtsa campaign 15v519000 (gm safety recall 14291). This problem results in failure of headlights. I received letter from gm in September 2015. It indicated that a permanent solution was not yet available. Today I checked with gm and they indicated the permanent solution is not yet available and furthermore they have no schedule for completion. Obviously, headlight failure is a significant safety concern (which has happened twice to me). For gm not to have developed a permanent solution, or apparently even a schedule for doing so, is extremely disappointing.
