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.

The contact owns a 2011 MINICooper. The contact stated that the vehicle stalled even when the accerator pedal was depressed. The check engine light illuminated as well. The vehicle was taken to the dealer where it was diagnosed that the high pressure fuel pump was defective and needed to be replaced. The vehicle was not repaired. The manufacturer was notified of the failure. The VIN was invalid. The failure mileage was approximately 30,000.

My vehicle has a P0087 code which means low fuel rail pressure. I spoke to MINIrep and he told me that it was the fuel pump. My researching has shown me that this has been a problem in the past and they were replacing these pumps until 2009 MINIand BMW. Why did they stop at 2009 when there hasn't been no change to this pump. But yet they keep failing at different mileage intervals. 30,000, mine at 65,000 really I've own dozens of car and never had to replace a fuel pump. Theres definitely a problem here and right now mine is intermittently, I would hate for someone to get hurt when they step on it and it fails at the wrong time, does someone have to get hurt before it becomes a safety issue. Prevention should come first thank you [xxx] information redacted pursuant to the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA), 5 U.S.C. 552(B)(6).

Premature high pressure fuel pump failure may lead to loss in power, furthering the potential for a wreck. Engine enters "limp home" mode, which reduces power considerably and makes acceleration much slower than normal. Check engine light comes on, several obd-II diagnostics codes appear.
