Approximately 120 model-year 2020 BMW 750i xDrive sedans and model-year 2019 M850i xDrive coupes and convertibles; X5 xDrive 50i and X7 xDrive 50i SUVs; and M5 sedans are being recalled due to fuel pump issues. The high-pressure fuel pump may not have been properly attached to the engine, which may cause the fuel pump flange to crack, resulting in a fuel leak and increasing the risk of fire in the presence of an ignition source.
BMW will begin notifying owners on Aug 26. Owners can call the automaker at 800-525-7417 or the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s vehicle-safety hotline at 888-327-4236 to learn more.
To fix the problem, dealers will replace the high-pressure fuel pump.
Vehicle manufacturers are legally required to repair any recalled issues or replace the defective part for free under the Highway Safety Act of 1970. If the dealership refuses to fix the problem or attempts to charge you for the repair, contact the manufacturer immediately.
