BMW Recalling 5-Series & 5-Series Gran Turismo

July 28, 2010

WASHINGTON - BMW of North America LLC is recalling more than 6,000 MY 2010 and 2011 5-Series and 5-Series Gran Turismo passenger vehicles because of a fuel gauge problem. 

According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, the vehicle's fuel level sensor within the fuel tank can become wedged against the tank. If this occurs, the fuel gauge in the instrument cluster may display a larger amount of fuel than is actually in the tank. This poses a safety risk, if the driver unexpectedly runs out of fuel and the vehicle stops running. 

The vehicles covered in the recall were manufactured from Jan. 12 through July 1 of this year. 

A remedy plan from BMW is forthcoming. 

Vehicle owners can reach the automaker at (800) 525-7417.
