Gov’t Opens Probe On Power Steering In Mini Cooper

The government has opened an investigation into potential power steering problems in Mini Coopers built by German automaker BMW AG.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said Tuesday on its website that it had received 54 complaints about the loss of power steering in Mini Coopers from the 2004-2005 model years.
When the power steering stops working, it becomes more difficult for the driver to steer or control the vehicle.

The preliminary investigation covers about 80,000 Mini Coopers.

BMW did not immediately comment on the investigation.

    LaDonna so glad the blog hit home with you today. Now you’ve made me smile over the old Carpenters album ooh, and the Hotcakes album by Carly Simon! Also a fan of Hall & Oates. As for quoting lumabs, one of the very first ones I had was a Disney soundtrack album to the movie Bambi. I’m told I was able to mimic the entire thing by the age of six. Thankfully, I don’t remember. LOL
