BMW has issued a voluntary recall of approximately 130,000 vehicles.
The BMW recall is over fuel pump concerns. BMW cites several possible issues stemming from the fuel pump problems.
“Symptoms include long-crank engine starting times along with the illumination of the ‘Service Engine Soon’ light. In certain cases, the driver may experience reduced engine performance in a Safe Mode accompanied by a tone and the illumination of the ‘Engine Malfunction’ light,” the car maker’s press release reads.
The news comes after an ABC report which exposed the automaker’s engine problems. BMW initially alleviated fears by pointing out affected vehicles will slowly decelerate rather than suddenly stop.
BMW models affected by the recall include:
- 2007–2010 model year 335i models
- 2008–2010 model year 135i, 535i and X6 xDrive35i Sports Activity Coupes
- 2009–2010 model year Z4 Roadster sDrive35i
BMW is also recalling just under 21,000 2008 model year X5 Sport Activity Vehicles to replace their fuel pumps.
Owners of any of these BMWs will be receiving notifications in the mail.
