problem #1

Dec 142009


  • 10,400 miles
2009 BMW 335ix with 10,400 miles. Sudden high pressure fuel pump failure, causing immediate decrease in power, rough idle, and poor handling. Engine service icons illuminated. Car towed to dealer, dealer fixed problem, dealership service manager could not guarantee that it will not happen again as..."BMW is aware of these fuel pump failures. They are doing everything they can to solve the problem, but it has been a problem for several years now." The manufacturer should have to disclose this potentially dangerous condition and deal with it effectively... not with an extended warranty, but with the option returning the car until they fix the problem.
