BMW of North America, 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."
NHTSA Campaign Number: 15V034000
Component: Tire Information Placard
Potential Number of Units Affected: 13,130
The maximum weight listed on the label is incorrect (too low) and therefore does not comply with Federal Regulations.
