Buick Regal Recalled, 2012 Models Could Present a Software Error

It’s my hope as a Bellevue personal injury lawyer that consumers in the United States are always on top of all recall news out there. I’m always very saddened when consumers are injured through the use of recalled products. Happily, this last recall notice did not mention any reports of injuries or accidents.

According to recent news articles, General Motors had issued a recall notice for all units of the 2012 Buick Regal models on account of a software error. According to the agencies covering this recall news, the issue with these vehicles’ software could result in an inadequate lighting.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has revealed in an official memo that the 2012 Buick Regal’s parking lamps do not activate even when the switch is turned on, which could result in diminished visibility and increase the likelihood of an accident.

The recall is likely to come into effect after March of 2012. Dealers are required to update the body control module free of charge for customers.
