    Actions: MINI will notify owners, and dealers will inspect and, if necessary, replace the front passenger seat cushion, free of charge. The recall began on December 28, 2015. Owners may contact MINI customer service at 1-866-825-1525. For detailed information & supporting documents, see the official NHTSA page concerning recall #15V739000 »
