        BMW recalling 91,800 Mini Coopers to fix sensor. Reuters (4/21) reports BMW said Saturday that it is recalling 91,800 Mini Coopers in the US to replace a defective sensor that may prevent the front passenger seat air bag from deploying in a crash. Automotive Fleet (4/20, 62K) says the affected cars are “2005-2006 model-year Mini Cooper and Cooper S cars manufactured from Jan. 5, 2005, to Nov. 28, 2006, along with 2005-2008-MY Mini Cooper Convertible and Cooper S Convertible cars manufactured from Jan. 5, 2005, to July 31, 2008.” The Car Connection (4/20, Read, 168K) reports NHTSA “says that there are ‘multiple issues causing increased electrical resistance of the sensor mat, associated with production, installation and field exposure (wear).’
