BMW To Recall 91,800 Mini Coopers Over Faulty Air Bag Sensors

Mini Coopers are the latest vehicles to be recalled as BMW of North America are getting ready to recall 91,800 cars. The reason for the recall? Faulty front-passenger air bag sensors.

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), the air bags in affected vehicles may not trigger in a crash. The sensor would fail to detect the presence of a passenger in the front seat, thereby not triggering when needed.

The affected models are as follows...

- 2005-2006 Mini Cooper and Mini Cooper S manufactured between January 5, 2005 & November 28, 2006
- 2005-2008 Mini Cooper Convertible and Mini Cooper S Convertible manufactured between January 5, 2005 and July 31, 2008.

BMW will replace the affected part for free. The recall won't happen until May 1. Owners will be notified accordingly.

According to a report from BMW, about 10% of vehicles have the affected sensor. So far, one injury possibly connected with the defect has been reported.
