GM is recalling 291,652 Saturn L-Series sedans and wagons in the US because of defective tail lights. Cars from the 2000 to 2004 model years are affected. The National Highway Transportation Administration said the plastic housing in the brake light assembly can distort and fail if the tail lights are on for an extended time. Apparently there have been a few accidents caused by this defect, but thankfully no injuries. With GM's round of problems, perhaps we should keep some sort of public relations score to keep track of their progress?
