BMW Recalls Vehicles for Faulty Fuel Pump

BMW USA has announced that it will recall as many as 154,000 vehicles due to an issue with the cars’ fuel pumps. According to Consumer Affairs, the cars’ loose wiring within the fuel pumps could cause a connector to melt over time, causing fuel to leak and possible vehicle stalling – a combination which can potentially lead to crashes. The recalled vehicles were manufactured between 2007 and 2012 and span 26 different models.

The full list of recalled vehicles includes:


  • BMW X5 3.0si
  • X5 4.8i, X5 M
  • X5 xDrive30i
  • X5 xDrive35i
  • X5 xDrive48i
  • X5 xDrive50i


  • X6 x Drive35i
  • X6 xDrive50i
  • X6 M


  • X6 ActiveHybrid
  • 535i xDrive Gran Turismo
  • 535i Gran Turismo
  • 550i xDrive Gran Turismo
  • 550i Gran Turismo


  • 528i
  • 535i
  • 535i xDrive
  • 550i
  • 550i xDrive


  • ActiveHybrid
  • 640i Convertible
  • 650i Convertible
  • 650i xDrive Convertible
  • 650i Coupe
  • 650i Coupe xDrive

While no injuries have been reported, the recall is being performed as a precautionary measure. The recall is set to officially begin December 5th, 2016, with affected owners to be contacted with instructions for how to receive a free replacement of faulty parts.

This marks third recall for the German auto manufacturer this year, following a June recall of its X3 and X4 SUVs due to faulty child seat anchors and a February recall connected to the enormous Takata airbag recall. For more information on this recall, click here.
