BMW will recall 2,231 vehicles sold in South Korea for manufacturing defects that could cause overheating and fire in cooling pumps, the transportation ministry said Thursday.

Subject to the recall are Mini Cooper S models manufactured between March 1, 2007 and Jan. 18 of last year in its British plant, according to the ministry.

The cars were found to have problems with cooling pumps designed to blow more air into engines for better combustion. The defect could cause overheating and fire, the ministry said.

Free repair services will be available at service centers of BMW Group Korea, the local importer and distributor of BMW vehicles, the ministry noted.
