Eh, it's pretty minor if you ask me. The Firestone recall was terrifying. Tires were failing while driving at high speeds causing serious accidents. The Ford Pinto recall was equally terrifying. Cars were bursting into flames killing the passengers. While this is no doubt serious, lets try to keep things in prospective. Recalls are fairly common nowadays, ask Toyota, and that is primarily due to government intervention. Older generation cars didn't have as many recalls due to the lack of enforcement.
Yes, there is a chance, though small, that your car will catch fire. It won't burst into flames and all reports so far show how it's a developing fire and not a combustible one. If you that concerned over your safety you can thwart any serious threat by avoiding parking your car in your garage.
I just talked to MINI (1-866-ASK-MINI (866-275-6464)) and they told me the Electric Auxiliary Coolant Pump will be replaced. The notices will start going out in February and will be timed so the dealers will have the parts and time to do the work.
I'm not in a hurry, I just like to drive fast.

I have seen conflicting cutoff dates posted on the web so I called 866-ASK-MINI 866-275-6464. The cutoff for the 2011 Clubman is Oct 2011. If you have a question I would suggest calling them. Have the last 7 of your VIN available. My dealer has very little info available at this time.
