The Problem: On a variety of 2007-2012 model-year BMW vehicles, the in-take fuel pumps may have insufficiently crimped wire contacts. Loose wires may cause the connector to melt, leading to a fuel leak. The fuel pump could also stop working, and if that happens, the engine could stall. BMW isn’t aware of any accidents or injuries related to the problem, according to documents filed with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
The Fix: BMW dealerships will replace the fuel pump module free of charge for consumers. The recall is expected to begin on December 5.
