    Faulty Head Lamps Cause Recall of 1,378 Cobalts

    A faulty component inside the new Chevrolet Cobalt’s head lamps has caused the National Highway and Transportation Safety Administration to order the recall of 1,378 of the Lordstown produced vehicles, the NHTSA’s Web site reports.

    NHTSA said the bulb shields inside the head lamps can loosen or break as a result of vibration. “If this occurred on a head lamp installed in a vehicle, oncoming drivers may notice additional glare, increasing the risk of a crash,” the NHTSA reported. The recall began Nov. 17 and the auto safety agency said dealers would install two new head lamp assemblies on all the affected vehicles. Full Story Here

    Atleast it wasn't something major, like transmission failure.

    Another reason not to be one of the first people lined up to buy an all-new vehicle.

    .................Japan's Toyota Motor Corp. is also recalling 92,577 of its Celica cars in the United States to fix a problem with their daytime running lamps, federal safety regulators said on Wednesday.
    The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said the recall, involving Celicas from the 2000 and 2001 model years, was ordered because the running lamps are too bright and fail to conform with federal motor vehicle safety standards.
