problem #1

Nov 272009


  • 6,500 miles
While driving, my car all of a sudden lost power and began to shake. The check engine light went on and the car went into "limp mode". I toot the car into the dealership and the fuel pump had to be replaced. The car has only 6500 miles and is 4 months old. This is the second time this has happened. The first time occurred at two months old with 2500 miles. This is very dangerous being that it happened on the fwy with no warning, I had to immediately pull over and turn the vehicle off and then back on. This is unacceptable for a new vehicle. I had my family in the car when it happened the second time and now feel the vehicle is unsafe for my family. Please make BMW recall this problem. Extending the warranty on the fuel pump is not sufficient and the problem needs to be addressed.
