    General Motors is extending warranty coverage for thousands of vehicles that may have defective headlights and were not part of recalls in 2014 and 2015, NBC Washington has exclusively learned.

    GM has extended the warranties of several models of Buicks, Chevrolets, GMCs and Pontiacs, the company said.

    “We are extending coverage for the modules on vehicles currently outside the recall population to 12 years or 150,000 miles," a statement from a company spokesman said. "Customers can contact a GM dealer for repairs at no cost.”

    Nearly half a million GM vehicles were affected by the recalls in 2014 and 2015. NBC Washington collected the full list of affected vehicles.
