BMW USA has announced a recall for as many as 154,000 vehicles over problems with the cars' fuel pumps, Consumer Affairs reported Friday morning. Cars affected could end up leaking fuel at least and crashing at most. The entire recall will affect 26 different models. Specifically, the cars' loose wiring could melt a connector, forcing fuel to begin leaking, possibly causing the vehicles to stall. That combination could lead to a crash.

The models that were recalled span vehicles manufactured as early as 2007 through as late as 2012.

They are as follows:


BMW X5 3.0si

X5 4.8i, X5 M

X5 xDrive30i

X5 xDrive35i

X5 xDrive48i

X5 xDrive50i


X6 x Drive35i

X6 xDrive50i

X6 ActiveHybrid

535i xDrive Gran Turismo

None of the vehicle models being recalled have resulted in any injury, Reuters reported, as the German automaker made the announcement out of an abundance of caution.

Owners of the car models affected should expect to be contacted by BMW with instructions for how to get a free replacement for the faulty equipment. The recall is scheduled to start Dec. 5.

As of early Friday morning there was no mention of the recall on either BMW USA's verified Twitter account or its official website. There was not an immediate announcement about refund offers.

This was not the first BMW recall this year. In June, the car manufacturer recalled nearly 200,000 X3 and X4 crossover SUVs for problems with the child seat anchors.

In February, 840,000 BMW vehicles were recalled because of implications from the massive Takata airbag recall, from which no deaths involved a BMW.
