Motors, a firm that manufactures automotive headlights has issued a recall
for more than 60,000 replacement lamps. The
affected combination headlights do not
have the amber side reflectors as required by the federal government.
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration states that visibility on these non-compliant units is compromised,
which could contribute to the likelyhood of accidents.
The company will notify owners of the recall
beginning this month, and offer to buy back the units. Automakers whose vehicles could be affected include Acura/Honda,
Ford, and Toyota. A full listing of manufacturers can be found at the link.
