Back in October, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration began investigating certain turbocharged Mini models for vehicle fires. The investigation came after reports of at least 12 vehicles lighting up, and now the investigation has officially lead to a recall.



NHTSA has announced on its website that Mini will recall 88,911 turbocharged models built between November 2006 and January 2011 for a water pump problem that could result in a fire. The government agency says on its website that "the electronic auxiliary water pump that cools the turbocharger has an electronic circuit board that can malfunction and overheat." If that happens, the board could smolder and result in a vehicle fire.



Affected models include the 2007-2011 Cooper S, the 2008-2011 Clubman S, the 2009-2011 Cooper S Convertible, the 2011 Countryman S and John Cooper Works models from 2009 to 2011.



Owners of recalled vehicles will be asked to bring their Mini model to the nearest dealer for a free water pump replacement. <a href="/2012/01/16/mini-recalling-certain-cooper-s-and-jcw-models-over-water-pump/#continued">Hit the jump[/url] to read over the official NHTSA release.<p><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2012/01/16/mini-recalling-certain-cooper-s-and-jcw-models-over-water-pump/" rel="bookmark">Continue reading Mini recalling certain Cooper S and JCW models over water pump[/url]</p><p style="padding:5px;background:#ddd;border:1px solid #ccc;clear:both;">Mini recalling certain Cooper S and JCW models over water pump originally appeared on Autoblog on Mon, 16 Jan 2012 10:59:00 EST.  Please see our terms for use of feeds.</p><h6 style="clear: both; padding: 8px 0 0 0; height: 2px; font-size: 1px; border: 0; margin: 0; padding: 0;"></h6><a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2012/01/16/mini-recalling-certain-cooper-s-and-jcw-models-over-water-pump/" rel="bookmark" title="Permanent link to this entry">Permalink[/url]&nbsp;|&nbsp;<a href="http://www.autoblog.com/forward/20148983/" title="Send this entry to a friend via email">Email this[/url]&nbsp;|&nbsp;<a href="http://www.autoblog.com/2012/01/16/mini-recalling-certain-cooper-s-and-jcw-models-over-water-pump/#comments" title="View reader comments on this entry">Comments[/url]
