I as well as every other GMC owner of this year truck have to live with sub standard (dangerous) headlights. The repair that GM offered to do fixed nothing and noticeably shortened the life of the bulbs. I've written a complaint to transport Canada regarding this issue, this may be the reason why I never buy another GM product again.
