Beetles, Corvettes being recalled
Brake lights could cause problems on the 1999-2002 Jetta, 1999-2000 Jetta III and the New Beetle from 1998-2002, and roof panel adhesive in GM 2005-2006 models, NHTSA says.

DETROIT, May 26 (Reuters) - Volkswagen AG is recalling 362,000 cars in the United States because a brake light switch may malfunction, according to U.S. safety regulators.

The models involved include the Jetta sedan from 1999-2002 model years, Jetta III from 1999-2000 model years and the New Beetle from 1998-2002 model years, National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its Web site on Friday.

NHTSA said the brake lights could become inoperative, or remain on if installed incorrectly during a previous recall.

Separately, NHTSA said General Motors Corp. is recalling 30,793 Chevrolet Corvette cars from the 2005-2006 model years as the adhesive between the roof panel and the frame may separate and the roofs could fly off.

"If there is a complete separation, the roof panel may detach from the vehicle and it could strike another vehicle and cause injury and property damage," NHTSA said.
