[YesAuto News] A few days ago, BMW (China) Automobile Trading Co., Ltd. and BMW Brilliance Automotive Co., Ltd. filed a recall plan with the AQSIQ in accordance with the requirements of the “Regulations on the Recall of Defective Automobile Products”. Since then, some of the following vehicles have been recalled, a total of 134,180 vehicles:

(1) Some 5 series (standard wheelbase version, GT), 6 series, X5, X6 cars imported by BMW (China) Automobile Trading Co., Ltd. from March 2007 to June 2011, totaling 68,090 units;

(2) The domestic 5-series long-wheelbase version vehicles produced by BMW Brilliance Automotive Co., Ltd. between March 2010 and October 2011, totaling 66,090 units.

Reason for the recall: For some vehicles within the scope of this recall, due to supplier manufacturing reasons, the vehicle fuel pump power supply line plug may be faulty. This leads to damage to the upper cover of the fuel pump, and there is a potential risk of fuel leakage and a potential safety hazard.

Solution: BMW (China) Automotive Trading Co., Ltd. and BMW Brilliance Automotive Co., Ltd. will inspect vehicles within the scope of the recall and replace qualified fuel pumps for free to eliminate potential safety hazards.

This recall was carried out under the influence of the defect investigation by the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine. For a period of time, the Defective Product Management Center of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine has received complaints from some consumers about fuel leaks in BMW vehicles. After receiving the complaint, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine immediately organized experts to conduct defect investigation and risk assessment on the above-mentioned problems. After investigation, it was discovered that the fuel pump supplier had problems in the fuel pump manufacturing process. At the same time, experts analyzed that the damage to the upper cover of the fuel pump would cause fuel leakage and even cause vehicle fires. BMW (China) Automotive Trading Co., Ltd. and BMW Brilliance Automotive Co., Ltd. decided to take recall measures to eliminate hidden troubles. At the same time, the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine will organize the supervision of this recall. If it is found that vehicles outside the scope of the recall still have similar safety hazards, or the recall measures cannot effectively eliminate the defects, the manufacturer will be required to re-recall or take other compulsory measures.

BMW (China) Automobile Trading Co., Ltd. and BMW Brilliance Automobile Co., Ltd. will proactively contact relevant car owners through authorized dealers to arrange maintenance. Users can call the BMW customer service hotline 400-800-6666 for consultation. Car owners can also visit the website of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (www.aqsiq.gov.cn) and the website of the Defective Product Management Center of the General Administration of Quality Supervision, Inspection and Quarantine (www.dpac.gov.cn) for more information.
