General Motors has issued a series of recalls that affect about 2.7 million vehicle owners in the U.S. alone. Included in the latest recalls is the previous-generation Chevrolet Corvette as well as the Cadillac CTS from the 2013 and 2014 model years. Other General Motors Company [NYSE:GM] vehicles being recalled include the Chevrolet Malibu, Pontiac G6 and Saturn Aura sedans as well as the Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra pickup trucks.
For the Corvette, 111,889 examples from the 2005 to 2007 model years are being recalled because of a potential loss of low-beam headlamp operation. When the engine is warm, the underhood electrical center housing could expand, causing the headlamp low-beam relay control circuit wire to bend slightly. After the wire is repeatedly bent, it can fracture and separate, leading to a loss of low-beam function.
Models from the 2008 to 2013 model years are also affected but will be covered under a Customer Satisfaction Program. GM says it is aware of several hundred complaints as a result of the condition but no crashes, injuries or fatalities.
