Earlier this week, MINI dealerships in the U.S. were notified that delivery of the 2014 or 2015 MINI Cooper F56 models was stopped.
At the time, MINI has not communicated the reason for the stop delivery order, only that it doesn’t apply to the Cooper S models. We’ve reached out to MINI for an official statement which just came in:
“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,” says MINI USA.
“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.”
Stay tuned as the story develops.
