The MINI Cooper S is under investigation

The MINI received some bad news from the National Highway Traffic Safety Association. Apparently an investigation was opened on the Mini Cooper S. To be more specific, the models built between 2007 and 2008MY. The reason is engine fires.
It seems that the National Highway Traffic Safety Association received 12 different complaints of engine compartment fire in the affected models.
Now, eight of the unfortunate owners said that the fire in the engine started while the car was parked and the ignition key removed and the other five said that their Minis caught on fire and the car was completely ruined.
A recall will take place affecting around 36.000 cars that were sold in the United States. The good news is that no one was harmed in the incidents.
Let's just hope things will be fixed after the investigation is ready, before fatalities take place.
