General Motors is recalling more than 740,000 small SUVs in the US because the headlight beams are too bright and can blind oncoming drivers.
The recall announced on Tuesday comes after US safety officials denied a request from the Detroit automaker to avoid the recall.
The company is recalling 2010 through 2017 model year GMC Terrain SUVs.
Documents released by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration state that reflections caused by headlight housings can illuminate some areas with too much light.
The agency says this can reduce visibility for other drivers and increase the risk of an accident.
“We are still in the process of finalizing an actual cure for the affected vehicles,” spokesman Dan Flores said.
Flores didn’t know how long it would take to complete the repairs. GM expects to provide written notice to owners beginning April 23.
The company says in documents that there has been only one customer complaint about headlights shining into trees.
