DETROIT NEWS — November 1, 2011 BMW AG said Saturday it is recalling 32,000 vehicles to replace potentially faulty electric auxiliary water pumps that can overheat and cause a vehicle fire.

The German automaker said the recall covers 2008-2011 5-Series, 5-Series Gran Turismo, 7-Series, X5 SAV, and X6 SAV models that have eight- or 12-cylinder turbocharged engines.

The recall comes after BMW found at least 102 cases of pump failures worldwide including two engine-compartment fires. BMW said it is unaware of any crashes or injuries as a result of the condition.

The auxiliary pump helps cool the turbocharger during some driving conditions and in some cases can fail, causing the circuit board to overheat. That could lead to a fire. BMW said in most cases drivers will be alerted by a warning message on the instrumental cluster during driving.

BMW first discovered the issue in June 2009 on test vehicles. In April 2010, a smoldered electrical cable of the water pump was found on a BMW-owned vehicle.

The company set up a task force in May 2010 after two customer vehicles reported burned engine compartments.

Dealers will replace the electric auxiliary water pump and will be notified next month. Owners will be notified starting next month as well.

YAHOO NEWS — October 27, 2010 BMW of North America announced a recall Tuesday of more than 150,000 vehicles because of potential problems with their fuel pumps.

BMW said the problem is specific to vehicles with twin-turbo inline six-cylinder engines with the High Pressure Injection direct fuel injection system. The high-pressure fuel pumps for these vehicles run the risk of failure, BMW said.

BMW said a recall of 130,000 vehicles extends to 335i models from 2007 to 2010, as well as the following models from 2008 to 2010: 135i, 535i and X6 xDrive35i Sports Activity Coupes. The recall also applies to Z4 Roadster sDrive35i models from 2009 to 2010.

About 40,000 of the 130,000 vehicles are expected to need a new high pressure fuel pump, the company said.

The company said that 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 illumination of the ‘engine malfunction’ light.

BMW also announced a separate recall of about 20,800 MY 2008 X5 Sports Activity Vehicles. These vehicles will also need a new low-pressure fuel pump, the company said.

In this case, should the fuel pump experience a failure, the engine will stop running and the driver will lose power assist for the steering and brakes, although both the steering and brakes remain operational, the company said.

The vehicles are equipped with 20-inchwheels, but the label states that the vehicles were equipped with 19-inch wheels and the stated tirepressure is incorrect for the equipped wheels.

Improper tire inflation can result in premature tire failure or reduced vehicle handling performance, either of which can increase the risk of a crash. BMW will notify owners and provide correct labels free of charge. The owner will have the option to affix the label themselves or they may take their vehicle to a BMW dealer who will affix the label for them at no cost.

The manufacturer has not yet provided the agency with a notification schedule. 10V-233

NEWS: BMW Recalls 200,000 Vehicles for Airbag Failures

Extends airbag warranty for some models

ConsumerAffairs.com — August 13, 2008 — BMW is recalling 200,000 cars and small SUVs because the front passenger-side airbag could fail.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) warned that in some of the recalled BMWs it is possible that the front passenger airbags will not deploy even if a sufficiently severe accident would occur.

The recalled BMWs include the 2004 to 2005 5-Series standard and sport seat models, the 2004 to 2006 X3 and the 2006 3-Series with sport seats.

NHTSA reported on its Web site that the passenger-side airbags can deactivate because of wear associated with a passenger getting in and out of the vehicle.

Depending on the manner and frequency of the front passenger’s entry and exit, small cracks have developed in the (sensor) mat. If this occurs, the front passenger airbags, with the exception of the head protection system, will be deactivated, the agency warned.

BMW dealers will repair the sensor system in the passenger seat when the recall begins in late September. BMW will extend the warranty for airbags on the recalled vehicles to 10 years from the first registration without any mileage limit, according to NHTSA.

The warranty extension covers the 2006 6-Series, 3-Series with a standard seat, 2004 to 2005 Z4, 2004 to 2006 7-Series, 2006 X5 and 2004 to 2006 5-Series with a comfort seat.

Under the extended warranty program, the occupant detection mat in a vehicle that experiences this specific issue will be replaced at not charge to the customer, NHTSA advises on its Web site.

NHTSA began investigating airbags failures in the BMW earlier this year when the Office of Defect Investigation reported that the passenger frontal airbag may malfunction and render the passenger airbag inoperative.

The models included in the initial investigation were the 2004 to 2006 BMW 5 and 7 series sedans, Z4 convertibles and X3 SUVs, as well as 2006 BMW 3 and 6 series cars and X5 SUVs.

NHTSA reported 729 non-duplicating owner reports and 23,739 non-duplicating warranty claims prompted the investigation or engineering analysis.

BMW owners can contact the automaker at 1-800-525-7417 or NHTSA at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

MAY 2008 — BMW is recalling 55 MY 2008 X5 sports utility vehicles for problems with the rear axle stabilizer (anti-sway bar). These vehicles were equipped with a sports-suspension stabilizer rather than a standard suspension stabilizer on the rear axle. In certain driving conditions, such as fast lane changes at high speed, the vehicle could experience an ‘over-steer’ behavior affecting vehicle handling and control, which could increase the risk of a crash.

Dealers will replace the rear axle stabilizer. The recall is expected to begin during May 2008. Owners may contact BMW at 1-800-831-1117 or via e-mail to CustomerRelations@bmwusa.com. 08V-170

AUGUST 2007 — BMW is recalling 6,595 MY 2007 X5 passenger vehicles for failing to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 135, Passenger Car Brake Systems. The cap of the brake fluid reservoir has been designed in order to recognize a low fluid level of the hydraulic brake system by triggering a red warning lamp in the instrument cluster.

A switch that is attached to this cap could malfunction at high temperatures. If this happened, the red warning lamp in the instrument cluster would not be activated. Failure of the hydraulic brake system may cause increased stopping distances which could result in a crash.

Dealers will replace the cap of the brake fluid reservoir. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification schedule. 07V391

OCTOBER 2007 — BMW is recalling 29,250 MY 2006-2007 550I, 650I coupe and convertible and MY 2007 X5 4.8I passenger vehicles equipped with V8 engines. In conditions of below freezing temperatures combined with low humidity, it is possible for electrostatic discharge to occur at the fuel rails. If this were to occur, the engine electronic control unit (ECU) could be affected resulting in engine stalling.

If stalling were to occur, the driver may not be able to maintain vehicle speed or accelerate and the power steering could fail increasing the risk of a crash. Dealers will attach two ground cables in the engine compartment. The recall is expected to begin during November 2007. 07V-479
