BMW is recalling its 2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop vehicles because of side impact performance.

BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain model year 2014 Mini Cooper Hardtop 2 door vehicles manufactured December 1, 2013, to May 14, 2014. The affected vehicles do not meet the side impact performance requirements for the rear seat passengers. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 214, "Side impact protection."
If the side impact performance requirements are not met, rear seat passengers may be at a higher risk of injury during a crash.
The remedy for this recall is still under development. The recall is expected to begin February 18, 2015. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-831-1117.
