BMW to Conduct Voluntary Recalls - Web Exclusive

Approximately 130000 vehicles are potentially affected with about 40000 expected to require a new high-pressure fuel pump.

Oct 26, 2010

BMW of North America is experiencing some problems with their fuel pumps so if you own one of the listed models, be aware. This week, BMW notified the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) of its intent to conduct a voluntary recall of some model year 2007-2010 BMWs equipped with twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engines, all of which feature BMW's High Precision Injection direct fuel injection system. It has also asked for approval from the California Air Resources Board to conduct this action. Affected vehicles may experience a failure of the high-pressure fuel pump.

Some symptoms might include long-crank engine starting times along with the check light. In certain cases, the driver may experience Safe Mode accompanied by a tone and the illumination of the "Engine Malfunction" light.

Based on the individual service history of the vehicle, the action will entail replacement of the high-pressure fuel pump and/or a software update.

Approximately 130000 vehicles are potentially affected with about 40000 expected to require a new high-pressure fuel pump.

Affected BMW models include:

• 2007-2010 335i models.
• 2008-2010 135i, 535i and X6 xDrive35i Sports Activity Coupes
• 2009 - 2010 Z4 Roadster sDrive35i

In a separate action, BMW has notified the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) that it will voluntarily recall approximately 20800 '08 X5s equipped with normally-aspirated inline six-cylinder engines to replace the low-pressure fuel pump. In this case, should the fuel pump experience a failure, the engine will stop running and the driver will lose power assist for the steering and brakes although both the steering and the brakes remain operational.

No injuries have been reported with either of these issues.

In the case of either issue, if the customer experiences a problem, they should contact their authorized BMW Center. Customers with additional questions should contact BMW Customer Relations at 1-800-563-4269 or email CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com.
