Turn Signal Breakdown Recall

General Motors is in the news again with a recall of another 733,000 vehicles, 5 golden rings, 1 partridge in a pear tree and who knows what else at this point…

The Problem: Your front turn signals each have two bulbs, and if both those bulbs burn out you’ll be presented with a warning light. However, if only one bulb burns out there’s no warning and GM wants to fix that. Side note for our city-driver friends: turn signals are a safety device used to indicate which direction you intend to go – you should try it sometime (I kid … sort of)!

The Fix: Your car’s body control module will be reprogrammed.

The Affected models: 2011-2013 Buick Regal and 2013 Chevrolet Malibu

Next Steps: There’s no word from GM on when the recall is slated to begin, but keep an eye on your mailbox for an official recall notice soon. Not literally though – putting your eye on the mailbox sounds painful and will probably alarm your neighbors. Questions or concerns? Give Chevrolet a ring at: 800-222-1020
