Certain vehicles, which were parked at the port of entry in Halifax during the ice storms in February 2015, may have been exposed to excessive standing water and salt for an extended period due to this isolated environmental incident.

Certain MINI models could have corrosion at the starter motor power supply cable connecters, which could lead to the inability to restart the engine following an engine shutdown by the start-stop (MSA) system, increasing the risk of crash causing injury in a traffic situation.

On certain BMW models, the lubrication of some internal components within the steering rack may have been exposed to excessive water or salt which could result in higher than normal steering effort or steering binding, increasing the risk of a crash causing injury and/or damage to property.

On certain BMW and MINI models, exposure of electrical wires and/or connectors to water or salt may lead to increased electrical system resistance, and increase the risk of fire causing injury and/or damage to property.

Correction: The necessary vehicle inspection procedure and associated corrective action are under development.
