MINI Cooper Vehicles with Brake Light Issue Recalled by BMW
Approximately 16,883 MINI Cooper vehicles are impacted by this recall
BMW of North America is recalling certain model year 2016-2017 MINI Cooper Clubman, Cooper S Clubman, and JCW Clubman vehicles.
When the affected vehicles are braking and the turn signals are on, the inner bumper-mounted brake light will go out. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
If the brake light does not illuminate when a turn signal is activated, other drivers may be confused, increasing the risk of a crash.
Approximately 16,883 MINI Cooper Clubman, Cooper S Clubman, and JCW Clubman vehicles are impacted by this recall.
MINI will notify owners of the recalled vehicles and local dealers will reprogram and correct the brake lighting free of charge.
This recall is expected to begin on May 22, 2017. Vehicle owners with questions about the recall can contact MINI customer service at (866) 825-1525.
