BMW Recalling Over 88,900 Mini Cars

January 18, 2012

WASHINGTON – BMW is recalling more than 88,900 Mini cars because the electric auxiliary water pump that cools the turbocharger has an electronic circuit board that can malfunction and overheat, posing a fire hazard.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the recall covers 2007-2011 model-year Mini Cooper S, 2008-2011 Mini Cooper S Clubman, 2009-2011 Mini Cooper S Convertible, 2011 Mini Cooper S Countryman, 2009-2011 Mini JCW, 2009 Mini JCW Clubman, and 2010-2011 Mini JCW Convertible vehicles.

To remedy the problem, dealers will replace the water pump free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin in February.

Vehicle owners can reach BMW at (866) 275-6464.
