Toronto, Ontario — Just short of three-quarters of a million General Motors SUVs are to be recalled due to a headlight glare issue despite a rejected request from the OEM to hold off on the recall.
As of Tuesday, GM says that the issue affecting about 740,000 GMC Terrain SUVs has already been corrected and does not affect current-generation vehicles.
The issue came to light following a consumer complaint that prompted a GMC investigation that found the low-beam headlamps on the Terrain “do not meet the photometry requirements of paragraph S10.15.6 and Table XIX of FMVSS No. 108,” according to the NHTSA.
Earlier in March, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration denied a 2019 petition from GM to declare the issue inconsequential for GMC Terrain vehicles from the 2010 through 2017 model years.
