“GM is unable to confirm any crashes, injuries or fatalities related to this condition,” the company said in a statement, and there’s currently no permanent repair for the problem. For now, dealers will replace the headlamp module with a new example of the same part.

The automaker first announced this campaign in November 2014 when it affected 316,357 examples globally of the 2006-09 Buick LaCrosse; 2006-2007 Chevy TrailBlazer and TrailBlazer EXT; 2006-2007 GMC Envoy and 2006 GMC Envoy XL; 2006-2007 Buick Rainier; 2006-2008 Saab 9-7X; and 2006-08 Isuzu Ascender.
