Thanks to ABC News, which publicized many complaints from BMW onwers, the Bavarian manufacturer was forced in a way or another to recall 150,800 vehicles sold in U.S. due to fuel pump problems that might occur. Several complaints were received also by the NHTSA, and here we go in depth with the details and with the models affected by this recall. About 130,000 BMW vehicles equipped with the six-cylinder twin-turbo petrol engine get in this recall due to the fuel pump problems.
The models affected are the 1 Series (135i), 3 Series (335i), 5 Series (535i), X6 (xDrive35i) and Z4 (sDrive35i) manufactured between 2007 and 2010.
About 20,800 X5 units meet the same fuel pump problem and need to make a visit to a BMW service. The X5 units in question are equipped with the six-cylinder 3.0-liter petrol engine and are manufactured in 2008. Once again to remind, the affected models are just the ones sold in the U.S. market.
