BMW of North America announced a recall of almost 89,000 Mini vehicles Monday.

BMW of North America is voluntarily recalling the vehicles due to a water-pump malfunction, according to the company. The water pump that cools the turbocharger on some of the car has a potential fire hazard in its circuit board, the company announced in a regulatory filing.

No injuries or accidents have been reported.

The company will replace the pumps at no charge to owners.

The recall applies to 2007-2011 models of the Mini Cooper S, 2008-2011 Cooper S Clubman, 2009-2011 Cooper S Convertible and 2011 Cooper S Countryman. It also includes the 2009-2011 models of the Mini JCW, JCW Clubman and JCW Convertible.
