BMW Recall 2010: List of US Models Affected with Faulty Fuel Pump

By Daniel Chubb - Oct 26, 2010

We have seen a couple of BMW recalls over the past few months including one on the BMW 5 series GT model that was due to a problem with its fuel tank, and a fault with the power-braking system on other models.

The company has now announced another recall in the United States, which according to Aaron Smith from will affect around 150,000 vehicles due to possible issues with the vehicle’s fuel pumps.

Models that could be affected include the sDrive35 model of the Z4 Roadster, 335i, 135i 535i and the X6 xDrive35i Sports Activity Coupes. The list of models we refer to were manufactured between the years of 2007 and 2010.

Some of the symptoms include reduced engine performance, takes a long time to start and the engine malfunction light illuminating. Have you been affected by any of the recalls?

    I have a 2007 Li BMW and the fuel pump has been replaced and the car runs like a truck, I would never buy another BMW again! They might look pretty on the outside but they are like crap under the hood!

    I have a 2010 535i. The fuel pump has been replaced TWICE. The car has left me stranded TWICE. The dealer – Vista BMW – in Coconut Creek , FL is a joke – simply a joke. Ownership of this vehicle is the worst experience in my car driving history. Making it worse is the dealership's only concern is I rate them a 10. BM – LEMON – W.

    I have an '07 335i with the sport package. Driving the vehicle aggressivly turns on the limp mode; shown by a triangle with exclamation point in the MFD. I was invited to a track (not just oval but road course) event to learn what a BMW can really do. After the SECOND lap, the vehicle went into limp mode. I took it back to the garrage area and let it cool off from about 225. About 30-45 minutes later, jumped back in for a few laps and the same thing happened. Took it back to the garrage to cool it off again. Third round I didn't push it as hard but the temp climbed over 300 by the end of 5 laps although I never saw the idiot light. There is a defect as the same thing happened to another 07 335i at the track that same day. We thought it might have been a need for the oil cooler, but apparently it is the fuel pump.

    I have a 2008 135i. I've put 28,500 miles on it with ZERO problems. I've had the car up to as high as 100 mph with no hiccup. That has never been a starting problem or a rough running, missing problem under any condition. The car, and my dealership, has been outstanding in all aspects.
