What Should You Do?

Recalls on your Mini must be performed by a Mini dealership. Mini notified owners of affected vehicles beginning in March, 2015. If you did 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.

Summary
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop two door vehicles manufactured December 1, 2013, to December 14, 2014. The affected vehicles may have been manufactured with an incorrect maximum capacity weight stated on the Tire Information Placard.

Consequence
The maximum weight listed on the label is incorrect (too low) and therefore does not comply with Federal Regulations.
