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.

I purchased a 2008 BMW 335I. Since 2008 it has been serviced at least twice for engine service light which resulted in replacing hpfp. In August 2010, the engine service light along with a slow and rattling start, odors of gas, and shaky rough ride -since then, my 335I has been serviced six times without avail. BMW na recall and BMW fairfax, va mechanics replaced the fuel module after the seventh service appointment since Aug 10. The car expectedly looses power while driving on the highway.

While driving around 65-70mph, I experienced a complete loss of engine power, and had to pull over to the shoulder of the highway. I immediately restarted the vehicle and was left with 50% engine power (limp mode). Luckily the dealer was only a couple miles away, so I immediately drove there for repair, but had this been elsewhere in the region, I would have been stranded. The BMW high pressure fuel pump was replaced and the car has been working well ever after. I was told that this incident accurately reflects what typical high pressure fuel pump (hpfp) failures typically present like.

This is the second failure of the hpfp in my 2008 BMW 335I. It occurred when I left work and started car and the car shuddered and the indicator showed that the car went into limp mode (reduced power). Drove the car to my child's preschool and turned off the car. Started the car and again the car went into limp mode. Decided to take the car directly to the dealership and the car stalled three times on the way. Two of the stalls were while the car was moving. The hpfp was replaced under warranty the next day.

My BMW 335xi has repeatedly had fuel pump issues. The engine will malfunction when I am in the middle of the road (often times in the middle of the highway). This is not only a potential safety issue for myself, but for others on the road as well. This fuel pump failure issue prevents my car from moving, which can potentially lead to someone's death, especially on the highway. Please force BMW to recall this fuel pump asap.
