BMW Recalls 150,000 Cars Over Fuel Pump Failures

While it’s never fun to post car recall news, it’s at least a change of pace to write about a recall that doesn’t involve Toyota. This time it’s BMW, who announced earlier today that they will be recalling a variety of vehicles from model years 2007 to 2010 for possible problems with the fuel pump.

130,000 vehicles equipped with twin-turbo six-cylinder engines would be recalled for software updates and a potential replacement of a high-pressure fuel pump, reports Reuters. BMW believes it will have to replace the high-pressure fuel pumps in 40,000 of these vehicles.

Additionally, BMW is issuing a recall for around 20,800 of its 2008 model year X5 SUVs that have six-cylinder engines to replace the low-pressure fuel pumps.
