2003 Mini Cooper Recalls
The power steering system may fail, resulting in extra effort required to steer the vehicle, and possibly increasing the risk of a crash.
Recalls on your Mini must be performed by a Mini dealership. Mini will begin notifying owners of affected vehicles starting in December 2015. If you do not receive a notification, but wish to check to see if your vehicle is included, please contact one of your local Mini dealerships. They will also check for any other uncompleted recalls on your vehicle. For best results, be prepared to provide your Vehicle Identification Number (VIN) to the service department consultant you speak with.
The lower mounting for the rear struts may fail, and cause the struts to loosen, and eventually break entirely.
Mini notified owners of affected vehicles starting in April 2003. You can check with your dealer to see if your vehicle is involved in this program. It is helpful to have your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number) on hand when you contact them.
