Mini Cooper S Clubman Recall 11V299000

Vehicles Were Assembled with Incorrect Speedometer

Recall Details

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.

Our Quick Take

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. 

What Should You Do?
