Lemon Law / BMW Fuel Pump Failure
Summary: The Lemon Law Firm of Kimmel & Silverman reiterates the need for diligence in tracking your BMW fuel pump problems, or any recurring issue with your vehicle.
Ambler, Pa. (August 4, 2010) – Kimmel & Silverman, the oldest and largest Lemon Law Firm in the Northeast, says that the fuel pump issues with BMW vehicles is on the rise. They have successfully resolved numerous Lemon Law and Breach of Warranty claims dealing with this BMW fuel pump issue for both refunds and significant cash recoveries. The Firm has seen this problem with 1-series, 3-series and 5-series vehicles.
The Lemon Law Firm indicates that BMW is working to correct the problem and has extended the warranty on the fuel pump to 10 years/120,000 miles. In the meantime, some BMW drivers are dealing with multiple repairs for the same problem. Even worse, some service advisers are blaming the problems on 'bad gas' instead of attempting a repair. Fuel pump failure can lead to stalling so it is essential that BMW drivers continue to bring the matter to their dealer's attention if they feel it is not being properly addressed.
In order to document your attempts at a repair, each time you take the car in for a problem make sure you get a repair invoice. These invoices should specifically identify the problem the consumer is complaining of, the amount of the days that the car was in service, a detailed explanation on how the problem was fixed, and a list of all the components replaced in the vehicle. Even if they say there is no problem, or the problem is with the gasoline you use, they need to provide the invoice. Make sure you keep track of these invoices, in case you need them later.
If you feel that your BMW is a lemon, you need to take action. If you feel you may have a Breach of Warranty or Lemon Law claim, you need to address it with a consumer Lemon Law lawyer as soon as possible to protect yourself. Under State and federal laws, help is free in these situations.
