General Motors is recalling certain model year 2011-2013 Buick Regal and model year 2013 Chevrolet Malibu vehicles to remedy problems with turn signals.
According to information from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the vehicles included in the recall are equipped with two turn signal bulbs in each front turn signal. If one of the two front turn signal bulbs burn out in either front turn signal lamp, there is no indication to the driver.
A total of 120,426 vehicles are included in this recall.
The NHTSA said if the driver is not aware that a turn signal is not functioning properly, the driver may continue to drive the vehicle. If half of a front turn signal is not illuminating, other driver's may not be aware that the affected vehicle is turning, thereby increasing the risk of a crash.
GM will notify owners of the issue and dealerships will update the body control module software, free of charge. Owners may contact Buick at 1-800-521-7300 or Chevrolet at 1-800-222-1020. GM's number for this recall is 12212.
