Please check the rear brake light photos (halfway down, this page: www.northamericanmotoring.com/forums/R55-clubman-talk-2008/293675-2016-clubman-13.html). I was following one of these cars the other day and in stop-and-go traffic the lower brake lights are simply not visible! the large (turn signal) lights just below the rear window "look" they're supposed to be brake lights but, obviously, don't come on with braking. No question, this will result in collisions, some serious. NHTSA needs to be proactive and force a corrective repair; this is truly a public health.safety issue!!!

This car has terribly placed taillights. The lights are not placed in a visible line of sight. The MINIclubman I saw had very small lights below the large lights on the rear doors. These vehicles should be recalled and the large lights that appear to be taillights should be made functional. The taillights on this vehicle are what appear to be rear fog lights at the very bottom of the car. This is an awful safety issue as you cannot see the lights in traffic. I'm surprised there haven't been several additional complaints.

Spotted new clubman in front of me on highway. Vehicle came to stop abruptly without apparent warning. Thankfully I was paying attention. Apparently taillights are not the large lights on the trunk, but these small lights placed directly at the bottom of the rear end, almost invisible in stop/go traffic. I was under the impression taillights had to be placed higher up and would have been the large lights across the entire rear section of the car, but that was not the case with this car. I can see this model of car getting rear ended quite frequently when people unexpectedly miss the terribly placed lights at the bottom of the car. The large lights you expect to be brake lights actually are used as turn signals according to online research. I have no idea what genius developed this awful idea, but it is extremely dangerous in stop and go traffic which plagues our highways. I don't think this should even be allowed to pass fmvs.
