Once more, with feeling: VW recalls 362,000 again; GM calls back Corvettes
The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration announced that Volkswagen AG will recall 362,000 vehicles in the United States for a brake light switch that has the potential to malfunction. The recall affects certain 1999-2002 model year Jettas, some Jetta III from 1999-2000, and also the 1998-2002 New Beetles. This is evidently a recall of a previous recall -- the brake lights might not operate at all or may stay lit due to an incorrect installation the last time the cars were brought in to resolve the problem.
Also heading up today's recall list: 30,793 Chevrolet Corvettes from model years 2005 and 2006, for the roof separation issue we first told you about in our Chevrolet Corvette P-Funk Edition Rankles Owners story back on April 21.
