Not sure what model it is as it is a company car. Now I know why cars following me were flashing their lights on and off at me. My 2003 Grand Prix had auto light sensors so I am surprised that these days it is not a standard feature.

It was standard on the XLT, so you should have it. Probably not set up. Did you look in your owners manual on what setting the headlight switch is to be at?

Just found out it is the 2013 "S" model and that this model does not have auto lights. You would think this would be a standard option.

Another way to keep the cost down.

I am fearful. Must car companies be responsible for turning on lights for drivers who should *know* when to do so? IF you will recall, when GM began the 'daylight' program, it was suddenly nothing to see a relatively new model vehicle with a light out, likely due to them being on when they were not necessary (and a big $$$ boon for whomever sold/replaced lights). This is, IMHO, a useless feature that makes it easy for drivers to forget one of the most important aspects of safe driving.
