Circuit board may malfunction and overheat

BMW is recalling nearly 89,000 Mini Coopers from the 2007 through 2011 model year to fix a circuit board that may malfunction and overheat.

BMW will notify owners and dealers will replace the water pump free of charge when the recall begins iin February 2012.
