BMW is recalling more than 1,900 new-model MINI Coopers due to a software programming error.

During service appointments, dealers may have inadvertently reprogrammed the transmission control unit with software that may allow drivers to exit the car when the transmission is not in park, increasing the risk of the car rolling away.

Certain model year 2014 – 2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop and Cooper S Hardtop 2-door vehicles are included in the recall.

MINI will notify owners affected by the recall and dealers will reprogram the transmission control module with the correct software, free of charge.

For more information, owners can contact MINI customer service at 1-866-825-1525.
