It's a mystery so far as to why, but in what seems to be a pretty drastic step, MINI USA has just informed US dealerships that they are stopping deliveries of 2014 and 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop models. This order does not affect Cooper S versions.
As we have reported recently, the new MINIs have undergone a series of recalls. Not totally surprising given the fairly extensive revamp of the platform over the last model year.
Our colleagues at BMWBLOG reached out to MINI corporate for some more info on the stop order. “MINI has issued a stop delivery order on certain MY 2014/2015 MINI Cooper Hardtops (not Cooper S) as we investigate a potential regulatory compliance issue...We are acting swiftly to work with the appropriate regulatory agency to assure our vehicles meet all industry standards, and are committed to maintaining our customer’s confidence in their vehicles. We will advise our dealers and customers with more details as they are finalized.”
We will keep updates coming as further information becomes available.
