my bug automatically starts to brake when I lift my foot off the pedal, could the ABS be this? the light has been on since I purchased it, two weeks ago. the steering wheel vibrates when I'm on the freeway and go over 50, could it be the abs as well? my bug is a 1999 green new beetle, with a 2.0 engine, no turbo

Might have separate or related problems?

Need to make sure the "Braking" is not due to the transmission performing engine braking.

Steering wheel vibration could be due to a stuck brake caliper or a bent and/or out of balanced wheel/tire assembly.

Also vibration could be cause by a bad axle/CV joint and or loose/worn motor/transmission mounts.

Time for some visual inspection and diagnosis.
