 Description of the problemAt least twice i have experienced the headlamps and running lights to fail on dark unlit roads, a very dangerous event. The first event occurred in the winter of 2014 the second in the winter of 2015. Gm recall is 14291. Nhtsa # 15v519000. I spoke with saab customer service and a saab certified service center. Both say my vehicle is not covered under this recall because they have determined that the headlamp failure doesn't occur on vehicles with high intensity discharge headlamps which my vehicle has. Yet i've experienced this frightening and deadly failure twice now. My vehicle should be covered under this recall. In those failure situations the car was in motion in darkness on a rural unlit road, it was winter and very cold (~0 degrees fahrenheit)
