AGENCY: Receipt of Petition for Inconsequential Noncompliance. ACTION: VerDate Mar<15>2010 16:04 Aug 17, 2011 Jkt 223001 BMW of North America, LLC,1 a subsidiary of BMW AG.2 (collectively referred to as ‘‘BMW’’) has determined that certain model year 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman and Mini Cooper S Clubman model passenger cars manufactured between February 8, 2011 and May 11, 2011, do not fully comply with paragraph S5.2.1 of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 101, Controls and Displays and paragraphs S5.5.2 and S5.5.5 of FMVSS No. 135, Light Vehicle Brake Systems. BMW has filed an appropriate report pursuant to 49 CFR part 573, Defect and Noncompliance Responsibility and Reports (dated May 25, 2011). Pursuant to 49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h) (see implementing rule at 49 CFR part 556), BMW has petitioned for an exemption from the notification and remedy requirements of 49 U.S.C. Chapter 301 on the basis that this noncompliance is inconsequential to motor vehicle safety. This notice of receipt of BMW’s petition is published under 49 U.S.C. 30118 and 30120 and does not represent any agency decision or other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of the petition. Affected are approximately 75 model year 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman and Mini Cooper S Clubman model passenger cars that were manufactured between February 8, 2011 and May 11, 2011. NHTSA notes that the statutory provisions (49 U.S.C. 30118(d) and 30120(h)) that permit manufacturers to file petitions for a determination of inconsequentiality allow NHTSA to exempt manufacturers only from the duties found in sections 30118 and 30120, respectively, to notify owners, purchasers, and dealers of a defect or noncompliance and to remedy the defect or noncompliance. Therefore, these provisions only apply to the 75 3 model year 2011 Mini Cooper Clubman and Mini Cooper S Clubman model passenger cars that BMW no longer SUMMARY: 1 BMW of North America, LLC is a U.S. company that manufactures and imports motor vehicles. 2 BMW AG, is a German company that manufactures motor vehicles. 3 BMW’s petition, which was filed under 49 CFR Part 556, requests an agency decision to exempt BMW as a vehicle manufacturer from the notification and recall responsibilities of 49 CFR Part 573 for 75 of the affected vehicles. However, the agency cannot relieve vehicle distributors and dealers of the prohibitions on the sale, offer for sale, introduction or delivery for introduction into interstate commerce of the noncompliant vehicles under their control after BMW notified them that the subject noncompliance existed. Those vehicles must be brought into conformance, exported, or destroyed. PO 00000 Frm 00126 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 controlled at the time it determined that the noncompliance existed. Paragraph S5.2.1 of FMVSS No. 101 requires in pertinent part: S5.2.1 Except for the Low Tire Pressure Telltale, each control, telltale and indicator that is listed in column 1 of Table 1 or Table 2 must be identified by the symbol specified for it in column 2 or the word or abbreviation specified for it in column 3 of Table 1 or Table 2. If a symbol is used, each symbol provided pursuant to this paragraph must be substantially similar in form to the symbol as it appears in Table 1 or Table 2. If a symbol is used, each symbol provided pursuant to this paragraph must have the proportional dimensional characteristics of the symbol as it appears in Table 1 or Table 2. Paragraphs S5.5.2 and S5.5.5 of FMVSS No. 135 requires in pertinent part: S5.5.2. Function check. (a) All indicators shall be activated as a check function by either: (1) Automatic activation when the ignition (start) switch is turned to the ‘‘on’’ (‘‘run’’) position when the engine is not running, or when the ignition (‘‘start’’) switch is in a position between ‘‘on’’ (‘‘run’’) and ‘‘start’’ that is designated by the manufacturer as a check position, or (2) A single manual action by the driver, such as momentary activation of a test button or switch mounted on the instrument panel in front of and in clear view of the driver, or, in the case of an indicator for application of the parking brake, by applying the parking brake when the ignition is in the ‘‘on’’ (‘‘run’’) position. (b) In the case of a vehicle that has an interlock device that prevents the engine from being started under one or more conditions, check functions meeting the requirements of S5.5.2(a) need not be operational under any condition in which the engine cannot be started. (c) The manufacturer shall explain the brake check function test procedure in the owner’s manual. S5.5.5. Labeling. (a) Each visual indicator shall display a word or words in accordance with the requirements of Standard No. 101 (49 CFR 571.101) and this section, which shall be legible to the driver under all daytime and nighttime conditions when activated. Unless otherwise specified, the words shall have letters not less than 3.2 mm (1/8 inch) high and the letters and background shall be of contrasting colors, one of which is red. Words or symbols in addition to those required by Standard No. 101 and this section may be provided for purposes of clarity. (b) Vehicles manufactured with a split service brake system may use a common brake warning indicator to indicate two or more of the functions described in S5.5.1(a) through S5.5.1(g). If a common indicator is used, it shall display the word ‘‘Brake.’’ BMW explained that the noncompliance is that the telltales used for Brake Warning, Park Brake Warning and Antilock Braking System (ABS) failure warnings are displayed using International Organization for Standardization (ISO) symbols instead E:\FR\FM\18AUN1.SGM 18AUN1
