There's Already A 2018 BMW M5 Recall For Faulty Fuel Pumps

Recall

And a stop-sale order to dealerships for affected cars.

It is not only older vehicles that are affected by recalls, but also all-new ones that suffer from early production issues. The all-new 2018 BMW M5 is one of them. According to the National Highway Transportation and Safety Administration (NHTSA), 846 model year 2018 M5s have faulty engine control unit software that could cause the fuel pump to stop, stalling the vehicle. As a result, the increase risk of a crash exists. Thankfully, the fix is actually rather simple.

Dealership technicians will simply update the software in the ECU. The affected vehicles have been identified as those built from August 21, 2017 until April 17, 2018. BMW has also issued a stop-sale order to dealerships for those specific vehicles falling within the production dates that have yet to be sold. There’s also a second BMW recall, only this one involves 2010-2011 model year 335d diesel sedans. A total of 6,591 vehicles are affected. The problem lies with the connection of the positive battery cable at the fuse box terminal, which may degrade over time. This could potentially result in the loss of electrical power causing the vehicle to stall.
