GM Korea to recall Alpheon sedans


GM Korea is voluntarily recalling its Alpheon sedans for headlight problems, the Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs said yesterday.

The 12,747 entry-level luxury cars subject to the recall were manufactured between April 30, 2010, and March 5 this year, according to the ministry. Vehicles subject to the recall are the 2.4-liter gasoline and hybrid models as well as those powered by a 3.0-liter engine.

The ministry said headlights on the sedan based on Buick’s LaCrosse were discovered to impair the visibility of drivers in other vehicles because they were positioned to shine too high off the road.

Owners of vehicles subject to the recall may have their headlights replaced free of charge at any GM Korea service center starting today, or have their costs reimbursed if they have already replaced related parts.
