Summary: 

Curt Manufacturing LLC (Curt) is recalling certain Class 1 trailer hitches, part number 11451, sold for installation on 2016-2018 Mini Cooper Clubman and Countryman vehicles. The vehicles may have inadequate structure points for the trailer hitch mounting, causing the hitch to sag under to certain loads and possibly separate from the vehicle.

Consequence Summary: 

If the trailer hitch sags or separates from the vehicle, there would be an increased risk of a crash.

Corrective Summary: 

Curt will notify owners, and dealers will provide a replacement hitch, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 9, 2017. Owners may contact Curt customer service at 1-800-798-0813.
