Quote:
BMW is recalling 154,472 vehicles registered in the U.S. and Canada for a fuel pump problem that could cause stalling, according to a filing with U.S. safety regulators and BMW.

BMW told regulators that no injuries have been reported. Since 2014, the German-based company has conducted safety recall campaigns in China, Japan and South Korea for the same issue, according to a filing posted on Friday by the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

Of the vehicles recalled in North America, 88 percent are registered in the United States.

BMW is recalling certain vehicles in the U.S. model year 2007-2011. Among them are the X5 3.0si, X5 4.8i, X5 M, X5 xDrive30i, X5 xDrive35i, X5 xDrive48i and X5 xDrive50i, 2008-2011 X6 x Drive35i, X6 xDrive50i and X6 M, 2010-2011 X6 ActiveHybrid, according to the filing.

Also the 535i xDrive Gran Turismo, 535i Gran Turismo, 550i xDrive Gran Turismo and 550i Gran Turismo, 2011-2012 528i, 535i, 535i xDrive, 550i and 550i xDrive and 2012 535i ActiveHybrid, 640i Convertible, 650i Convertible, 650i xDrive Convertible, 650i Coupe and 650i Coupe xDrive vehicles.

BMW will notify owners and dealers to replace a fuel pump module free of charge beginning in early December. BMW owners can call BMW customer service for details.

I'm confused. Didn't the 2011 528i have the N52 and thus would also affect a 328i/128i?

How is this surprising? My 335 ate fuel pumps for lunch bi yearly. I love how it was told to me I use bad gas. 91 octane from Chevron only.

All cars will see recalls. Not even remotely a big deal.

Great first my airbags may kill me now my fuel pump mail fail and leave me stranded. Wish it was summer so I could drive the M2 crushing soda cans instead of playing Russian roulette driving the X5.

What wacky alternative universe have I been transported to where a LR (wife's car) is more reliable than a BMW.

Usually a sign of cost reduction, I wish they would understand that in most cases cost reduction always ends up costing them more in the end.

Just yesterday my company had to spend almost a million dollars on a tool to fix gating issues that was a direct result of trying to make the tool cheaper, they originally only saved 100k and where giving each other high fives, now after the fact it's costing them dearly and they look like fools.

Build it right the first time and just factor it as a cost of doing business, GM Chrysler and Ford all went down the cost reduction way of life and it nearly killed them.

Cost reduction isn't a bad thing until it starts messing with the customers safety and or the quality of the car.

How many of you were feverishly reading through the list of recalled models, hoping you would see your car listed? LMAO

There was a time when a recall was a total embarrassment for a manufacturer. Good times for them on that front now a days

Hilarious, they are on their third owner by now. How can you not know this? And NO, I am not an engineer, sorry. Sadly, Engineers, like Generals, all die. I am a Doctor. And we all die, too.

That's Bull$&!t that humans aren't perfect statement!

There more than enough stories on BMW cutting corners putting out a shitty product. Here is a list for your enjoyment:

- Vanos recall
- Driver and passenger air bags
- Water pump and thermostat (plastic in a $70k car)
- Dreaded soft touch interior handles melting again in $70k car really?
- Head gasket, oil pan gasket leaks virtually ALL BMW's. This is not an imperfection, the engineering is fundamentally bad!
- Drive shaft

I'm sure more issues and recall exist!

I drive 2011 x5 e70 LCI and yes I have had all those issues. No, this is not my first BMW.

I have owned other car brands and no where near the maintenance and breakdown as a BMW. Granted I know some of the M owners don't have as many issues. I do know that x5m is bag of problems. If BMW where to fine tune some of the issues across all platforms then the brand would be better positioned and have more loyal customers.

Back to the dealer for another recall.

Almost a decade later and they STILL can't make a bloody fuel pump that lasts. Pathetic.
