Land Rover is recalling 33,000 Freelander SUVs in the U.S. to fix a faulty brake light switch.
All Freelanders built at the company's Solihull, U.K., plant between September 2001 and May 2005 could be affected.
In a posting on its Web site, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration says the brake lights on some 2002-'05 models stay illuminated even when the brake pedal is not depressed. Warning lights for hill descent control, traction control and cruise control could also light up.
Land Rover dealers have been instructed to install new switches of the same design in March and then to replace them in May when a re-engineered unit becomes available.
Number Vehicle : 33,000
Build Date : 2002-2005
