Logo - BMW of North AmericaBMW of North America, LLC (“BMW”), a Greer, South Carolina establishment, has recalled an estimated 683 model year 2020 MINI Hardtop 2-Door Cooper, Cooper S and JCW vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V634000 reports the rear side trim panels may have been assembled without a crash pad. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 214, specifically “Side Impact Protection.”

According to the NHTSA, without a crash pad, rear seat passengers would have an increased risk of injury in the event of a side impact crash.

MINI will notify registered owners, and MINI dealers will install crash pads, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 16, 2019. Owners may contact MINI customer service at 1-866-825-1525 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”).
