    Are there any recalls, assistance, advice,help, etc. for 2011
    Cadillac S R X’ s regarding dim, low beam headlights. I changed out the new bulbs with the same numbered bulbs as the factory bulbs that the SRX came with. Brightness (lack of brightness) still the same. I talked to the dealer in San Antonio, TEXAS and they were of no help. Of course, the car is a 2011, out of warranty, etc. and they were of no help. I’ve read on the Internet that there are other SRX owners with the same or similar symptoms/issues, but supposedly, there are no recalls by GM. I’m at a loss as to how to have this issue resolved. It’s definitely a safety concern and we’re reluctant to drive a night when head lights. Thank you, OTIS GRUPE

      Otis, I’ve not heard of this issue before, and not sure if there is a recall, but you can check your VIN here: http://www.safercar.gov

      You might talk to the folks at the factory and see if they have any suggestions: https://www.cadillac.com/contact-us

      I wish I could be of more help.
