BMW has launched a global recall of 235,500 BMW Mini vehicles, due to an electronic circuit board can overheat and cause the vehicle to catch on fire.
Around 89,000 vehicles in the U.S. are affected by the move.
According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's website, BMW is recalling certain Mini Cooper, Cooper S, Clubman, Cooper JCW, Clubman, Countryman and Convertible models.
"The electric auxiliary water pump that cools the turbocharger has an electronic circuit board that can malfunction and overheat," the NHTSA's website said. "The circuit board may smoulder, which could result in a vehicle fire," the website further said, adding that BMW will notify owners and dealers will replace the water pump free of charge.
The safety recall is expected to begin during February 2012.
