BT Online Bureau     January 16, 2012
The US traffic safety agency reportedly announced on Sunday that German automaker BMW is recalling nearly 89,000 Mini Coopers citing the threat of a smoldering circuit board that could set the cars on fire.

"The electric auxiliary water pump that cools the turbocharger has an electronic circuit board that can malfunction and overheat," the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said on its website.

The recall affects various models of Mini roadsters built from November 2006 to January 2011, including the Cooper S, Cooper S Countryman, and Cooper JCW convertible.

BMW said that beginning in February, dealers will replace the water pumps free of charge.
