2016-'17 Mini Cooper Clubman Recalled for Airbag Problem

WASHINGTON — BMW of North America is recalling 7,810 2016-'17 Mini Cooper Clubman hatchbacks because of a problem with the side curtain airbags, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The side curtain airbags for the front seat passengers may not inflate as intended in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury, the NHTSA said.

No injuries or accidents are linked to the recall, BMW told federal safety regulators.

The affected Clubman hatchbacks were built from August 19, 2015, through July 14, 2016.

Mini dealers will modify the side curtain airbag covers. The recall is expected to begin on September 12. Owners can contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.

Edmunds says: Owners of these vehicles should be prepared to make a service appointment with their BMW dealer in mid-September. Those with an immediate concern should contact their dealer now.
