The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration is intensifying its investigation into whether General Motors should have recalled about 551,000 vehicles instead of 8,000 for a brake light problem, according to a report posted on the agency’s Web site.

It is the third time this year N.H.T.S.A. has challenged the adequacy of G.M. recalls.

In February, N.H.T.S.A. began what is called a recall query, which was basically a challenge to the adequacy of a recall. The agency said it was prompted by receiving 212 complaints about brake light problems from owners of 2005-8 Pontiac G6s. The recall in 2009 covered only 2005-6 models.
