This weekend MINI USA sent dealers a delivery stop notice on the 2014 and 2015 model year Cooper model (not the Cooper S). We reached out to MINI and they confirmed the situation and issued an official statement for MotoringFile readers.
Official Statement: MINI has issued a stop delivery order on certain MY 2014/2015 MINI Cooper Hardtops (not Cooper S) as we investigate a potential regulatory compliance issue. We are acting swiftly to work with the appropriate regulatory agency to assure our vehicles meet all industry standards, and are committed to maintaining our customer’s confidence in their vehicles. We will advise our dealers and customers with more details as they are finalized.
