Additional information:

Among the 59 recalls the NHTSA has announced this August comes news of the following:

BMW of North America, LLC (“BMW”) has recalled an estimated 1,645 model year 2018 BMW M5 vehicles. The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may become stuck against an in-tank fuel line, causing the fuel gauge to display an inaccurate and possibly larger amount of fuel than is actually available.

According to the NHTSA, an incorrect fuel reading may lead to the vehicle stalling and increase the risk of a crash.

BMW will notify registered owners, and dealers will secure the in-tank fuel line to keep the fuel line from contacting the fuel level sensor, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 10, 2018. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
