Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

Please take a moment & say thank you by donating $5 or whatever you can to the Center for Auto Safety.

2008 BMW 335 Owner Comments

problem #1

335 6-cyl

  • 7,025 miles


The contact owns a 2008 BMW 335I. While driving at any speed, the vehicle stalls. The radio and instrument panel lights remain functional, but all the other components stop working. The vehicle was towed to the dealer. They placed gasoline in the fuel tank and the vehicle started immediately. The contact stated that the vehicle had at least a quarter tank of gas and that the low fuel indicator had not illuminated prior to the failure. The failure has recurred at least four times since the repair and the vehicle was taken back to the dealer 3 times. The second time she took the vehicle back to the dealer, the fuel gauge displayed 70 miles remaining in the fuel tank. The contact was advised to keep as much gasoline in her vehicle as possible. When the failure recurred the third time, the mechanic stated that the right fuel level sensor needed to be replaced. After the fuel level sensor was replaced, the service engine light illuminated on the vehicle. During the fourth visit to the dealer, they removed the fuel tank and found that one of the fuel lines was pinched. The dealer re-attached the fuel return line. One month later, the vehicle stalled again and displayed that there was 94 miles of fuel remaining in the vehicle. The service engine light did not illuminate. The contact placed gasoline in the vehicle and drove to the dealer. Tests were performed on the right level sender, the harness was disconnected at the jbe sensor, wires were replaced, and the harness was reassembled. The dealer test drove the vehicle and it performed normally for three weeks. Recently, the vehicle stalled while traveling 40 mph. The fuel gauge displayed 56 miles remaining in the tank. She placed fuel in the vehicle, but the service engine soon light illuminated. The failure mileage was 7,025 and current mileage was 14,425. Updated 06/09/09. Updated 06/10/09.
