2005 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 passenger seat occupant sensor can malfunction, preventing the passenger side front air bag from deploying in a crash.
Mini will contact owners of affected vehicles starting in May 2015. Additionally, you may contact your dealership to see if your vehicle is affected. The dealership may ask for your VIN (Vehicle Identification Number), so please have it on hand when you contact them.
