Mini recalls

 

For Models: Mini Cooper

Body, Interior & Misc., October 3, 2014

RepairPal Expert Overview:

A non self-locking nut may have been used to secure the spare wheel under the car. If this is the case, vibration from driving can cause the nut to loosen allowing the wheel to fall off. The wheel would become a road hazard, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will replace the nut securing the spare wheel with a self-locking nut to correct this concern.

For Models: Mini Cooper Countryman S, Mini Cooper S, Mini Cooper S Clubman

Body, Interior & Misc., May 25, 2011

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Seventy-five vehicles were recalled because they were assembled with a European specification tachometer that uses brake-system warning lights and symbols that do not meet U.S. requirements. In the event of an ABS system problem, only the outer circle of the symbol illuminates, not the ABS letters. As such, the driver may be unaware that there is a problem with the ABS, increasing the risk of a crash. All vehicles involved in the recall have been repaired.

For Models: Mini Cooper, Mini Cooper S

Body, Interior & Misc., March 4, 2010

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The incorrect tire pressure label may have been installed during assembly. Some vehicles were equipped with 17-inch wheels, but the label is for 16-inch wheels; inflation pressure may also be incorrect. Tire durability and vehicle stability can be affected by incorrect tires or tire pressure, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will mail customers the correct tire pressure labels, or they will install the correct label if you prefer. This recall is scheduled to begin by Match 4, 2010.

For Models: Mini Cooper, Mini Cooper S

Body, Interior & Misc., April 30, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

Twelve Mini Cooper vehicles were assembled with 15-inch wheels instead of 16-inch wheels and tires as indicated on the tire frame label on the door frame. This does not conform with with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard regarding tires and wheels. Dealers will replace the 15-inch wheels and tires with the-16 inch wheels and tires free of charge. The recall began May, 2009.

For Models: Mini Cooper S

Exhaust & Emissions, January 15, 2009

RepairPal Expert Overview:

The tailpipe extension protrudes slightly past the rear bumper. Inadvertent contact with the tailpipe extension could occur. If the extension were hot, a burn could result. Dealers will replace the tailpipe extension with a shorter one to correct this issue. This recall is expected to begin during January of 2009.

For Models: Mini Cooper Clubman, Mini Cooper S Clubman

Brakes, October 16, 2008

RepairPal Expert Overview:

560 vehicles may have been filled with the incorrect front brake rotors (16" rotors instead of 17"). Under certain driving conditions, this could result in reduced braking performance, increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will inspect the front brake rotors and pads and replace them as necessary. The recall is expected to begin by October 16, 2008.
