It’s time for another defect alert–this time around, it’s the BMW 335i. Many distressed drivers are calling into the 1-800 LEMON LAW hotline complaining about fuel pump failure. This is nothing new–the manufacturer is aware of the problem and has extended the warranty on the part, and the message boards have repeatedly covered the issue. But when the part fails, it does put the driver in significant danger, with the car limping along, and possibly stalling.
If you sense that you are having problems with your fuel pump, get to an authorized BMW dealership as soon as possible. Make sure that you receive a repair invoice when you pick up the car which clearly outlines the problem you complained about. Even if they say the problem is due to bad gas (which we all know is not true), they need to provide an invoice. MAKE SURE YOU KEEP TRACK OF THESE PAPERS. You may need them down the road.
If you find that you are repeatedly back to the BMW dealer with fuel pump problems, drop us a line or give us a call and we will be happy to discuss your situation. We have been actively resolving these claims.
