BMW is recalling over 6,000 units of the 2010 to 2011 model year 5-Series Gran Turismo due to a glitch in the vehicle’s fuel-storage and gauge.
“The vehicle’s fuel-level sensor within the fuel tank can become wedges against the tank,” the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration said in a statement. “If this occurs, the fuel gauge in the instrument cluster would display a larger amount of fuel than was actually in the tank. As a result, if the tank became empty, the vehicle could stall, increasing the risk of a crash.”
BMW has not provided the NHTSA with a fix and notification schedule. Owners experiencing the problem can call BMW at 1-800-525-7417.
So if you thought you’re EfficientDynamics skills were at an all-time high – you’re mistaken.
