Mini Cooper S Recalls
The front passenger seat cushion which contains a sensor that determines if there is an adult sitting in the seat may malfunction, and cause the passenger frontal air bag to be deactivated or activated for use at inappropriate times. This could cause increased risk of injury during a crash.
The power steering system may fail, resulting in extra effort required to steer the vehicle, and possibly increasing the risk of a crash.
The passenger frontal air bag may not properly deploy in a low speed crash, resulting in possible occupant injury.
Certain requirements for vehicle side impact protection were not met when the vehicle was manufactured. As a result, the rear seat passengers are at risk of injury from a side impact to the vehicle.
The passenger seat occupant sensor can malfunction, preventing the passenger side front air bag from deploying in a crash.
The transmission may have been programmed erroneously to allow the driver to exit the vehicle when it is not shifted to park. This could allow the vehicle to roll unexpectedly, resulting in injury or an accident.
The circuit board for the auxiliary water pump may fail and overheat. As a result, it could smolder and/or catch fire.
The tire pressure label information may be incorrect. Improperly inflated tires can affect tire durability and vehicle stability, increasing the risk of a crash.
Twelve Mini Cooper vehicles were delivered with the incorrect wheel and tire size; they do not match the tire label on the door frame. This does not conform with with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard regarding tires and wheels.
The tailpipe extension protrudes slightly beyond the rear bumper. Inadvertent contact with a hot tailpipe extension could result in a burn.
