REPOST– BMW 3-Series Fuel Pump Problems Continue

June 09, 2010
By: Robert Silverman

Sometimes, an item is so important that it’s worth repeating.  The fuel pump issue with BMW 3-series vehicles  is on the rise and we have successfully resolved numerous lemon law and breach of warranty claims since we initially posted the issue last October.

BMW is working hard to come up with a fix to the problem, however that has not prevented consumers from having to return to the shop countless times to address the situation.  The company has extended the warranty on the part, but we have also seen instances where the service adviser is blaming the problem on “bad gas,” which we do not feel is a suitable explanation.

Regardless of whether the service department can duplicate the problem or not, it is essential that they give you a repair invoice each and every time you complain of the problem.  Fuel pump failure can lead to stalling so it is essential that you continue to bring the matter to your dealer’s attention if you feel it is not being properly addressed.

If you are experiencing fuel pump problems with your BMW and have questions about your lemon law rights, drop us a line at Lemon Law. Com or give us a call at 1-800 LEMON LAW (1-800-536-6652) and we will be glad to discuss the situation with you.

    I have a 2008 BMW 535xi that I have been leasing for the last 26 months. Over the last two and half months the car has been repaired 5 times for the “engine malfunction/reduced power” problem. This is a known problem for this engine.

    I received the car back two days ago after “supposedly” having been repaired for the 5th time for this problem. The same problem came back again today. I am looking into an action for “breach of warranty”.

    Any advice would be appreciated.

          I just unloaded a POS low mileage 3 series coupe, a 2003 model. You talk about overrated POS automobiles!!!! If you want a car where the check engine light glows longer than the life of the headlamp bulbs, then a bimmer is for you. In the course of 5 years of owning this lemon I incurred a cost of over $12,000 in repairs. From a failing A/C compressor, failing power window motors (both doors), faulty climate control modual, automatic transmission reverse failure, front “A” arm bushings shot at 22,000 miles, cracked (faulty) fuel tank, numerous squeaks and rattles, driver’s side window fell of its track, BMW battery failure (3 batteries), xenon headlamp height adjusters failed on driver’s side, radiator replaced to due crack, steering column had to be replaced due to a constant snap whenever making a left turn, handle broke for tilt steering wheel, passenger power door lock failed, factory security system was always malfunctioning, battery run down after 3 days, power steering leaks, sunroof stuck shut and sunroff sunshade broke after 5 uses. I was stupid and fell for the lure of buying a BMW. I know better now, learned an expensive and valuable lesson to never again buy any euro crap automobile!
