Recall Alert: 2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop 2-Door

MMS ID 62113 (created by CM Utility) automatic-content-migration

Vehicles Affected: More than 5,800 model-year 2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop 2-Door cars manufactured between Jan. 7 and July 21

The Problem: The spare wheel may have been attached under the car with a nut that is not self-locking. Vibrations from driving may cause the nut to loosen, allowing the wheel to separate from the car, becoming a road hazard and increasing the risk of a crash.

The Fix: Mini-manufacturer BMW was expected to begin notifying owners this month, and dealers will replace the spare wheel securing nut with a self-locking nut for free.

What Owners Should Do: Owners can call Mini at 866-275-6464, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 or go to www.safercar.gov for more info.
