Among the 25 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:
BMW of North America, LLC (“BMW”) has recalled an estimated 16,883, 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.”
According to the NHTSA, if the brake light does not illuminate when a turn signal is activated, other drivers may be confused, increasing the risk of a crash.
