Mini Cooper recall

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - BMW of North America is voluntarily
recalling nearly 89,000 Mini vehicles because of a water pump
malfunction that could cause a fire.
The company says in a regulatory filing Monday that the water
pump that cools the turbocharger in some of its cars has a circuit
board that can malfunction and overheat. That could cause
smoldering and potentially a fire.
No accidents or injuries have been reported. BMW will replace
the pump at no cost to owners.
The recall applies to 2007-2011 models of the Mini Cooper S,
2008-2011 Cooper S Clubman, 2009-2011 Cooper S Convertible and 2011
Cooper S Countryman. It also includes the 2009-2011 models of the
Mini JCW, JCW Clubman and JCW Convertible.
