A very minor display issue has lead the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration to recall 75 MINI Clubman vehicles. A small group of Clubman vehicles feature a EU-standard ABS symbol in their tachometer, which illuminates differently than the rest of the U.S. spec vehicles. Details to follow:
BMW Is recalling 75 model year 2011 MINI Cooper Clubman and Cooper S Clubman vehicles manufactured from February 8, 2011, through May 11, 2011, for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicles Safety Standard No. 101, "Controls and Displays." These vehicles are equipped with a European specification tachometer that uses brake-system telltales/symbols that do not meet U.S. requirements.
In the event of an ABS system problem, only the 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 affected vehicles have been repaired at dealerships. Therefore, an owner notification letter will not be issued for this campaign. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-525-7417.
