BMW recalls 18,000 models for failure of fuel pump
|   Saturday, July 18, 2015
BMW is going to recall its approximately 18,000 cars of 2015 and 2014 model years and 2, 3, 4 Series models since the fuel pumps are of potentially bad quality. The complete roster vehicles contain four or six cylinders with 2 Series hardtop model which have rear and all wheeled drive and also the Gran Turismo 3 Series models. Also they are making plans to include the coupes, convertibles etc. in this calling list. The Active Hybrid 3 Series model has been added to it too; however, they did not think that this list should contain diesel line vehicles of 3 Series.


Traffic Safety of National Highway Officials told to a private news channel that if the nickel plates present in few parts of a car are improperly used then they may cause the fuel pump get failed which often leads to stall situations. So BMW has already started planning to inform all the owners to start replacing their fuel pumps on every month's last day if the vehicle is an affected one.

The NHTSA bulletin containing individual models complete breakdown and affected by recall. The receipt date of report is on 31 March, 2015 having NHTSA campaign number 15V189000. Components belong to Gasoline Fuel System. Exact number of potentially affected units is 18,054. It's BMW, North America who have manufactured it.

All models which are to be called are 228i Coupe of 2014, M235i Coupe, 328xi, 328i, 320xi, 320i, 335xi, 335i, ActiveHybrid 3, Sports wagon, 328xi, 428i Coupe 435i Coupe, 428xi Coupe, 428xi Convertible, 428i Convertible, 328i Gran Turismo, 435i Convertible, 328xi Gran-Turismo and 335xi Gran-Turismo vehicles. These models have improper nickel plating components in fuel pump which causes the fuel pump getting failed easily.

The failure of fuel pump can be very dangerous as it may stall the vehicle giving no warning at all. It may also increase the crash risk. So the best remedy to overcome this situation is by recalling dealers and owners who have such models. They will replace the fuel pump for which they won't have to pay. BMW is planning to start this recall program from 30 April, 2015.
