SUMMARY:BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 MINI Cooper Hardtop two door vehicles manufactured December 1, 2013, to December 14, 2014. The affected vehicles may have been manufactured with an incorrect maximum capacity weight stated on the Tire Information Placard. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 110, "Tire Selection and Rims and Motor Home/Recreation Vehicle Trailer Load Carrying Capacity Information for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of 4,536 kilograms (10,000 pounds) or less."
CONSEQUENCE:The maximum weight listed on the label is incorrect (too low) and therefore does not comply with Federal Regulations.
REMEDY:MINI will notify owners, and dealers will replace the incorrect labels with corrected labels, free of charge. Owners will notified by March 13, 2015. Owners may contact MINI customer service at 1-866-825-1525.
