BMW Recalls Cars After ABC News Exposé


BMW has recalled 130,000 vehicles using turbocharged inline-6 engines after complaints regarded the fuel pump used with the engine. Vehicles affected include 2007-2010 135i, 535i, X6 and Z4 cars, while another 20,000 2008 X5s are also being recalled, despite not using the turbo motor.

BMW owners approach ABC after they complained of "losing power" while driving, which was apparently the result of a fuel pump malfunction that caused the vehicle to enter into the "limp home" mode that owners of high performance engines may be too familiar with. In limp home mode, the engine reverts to a "safe" configuration that reduces power and load on the engine while ensuring that the driver can safely get the vehicle to a secure location.

ABC is said to be continuing their investigation, and we'll avoid passing judgement untill all the facts are out.
