  • miles
Instrument panel (speedometer, gas gauge, temp gauge tach) are not back lighted during daylight driving. When it is cloudy but not dark enough for the light sensor to turn on the night mode, it is difficult to see these instruments and when you have sunglasses on it is impossible. This is a driving hazard because you do not know how fast your are driving or the state of your fuel. This is the 2006 Buick Lucerne.
