BMW is in the news lately for recalling vehicles abroad over fire concerns. While the issue does not impact American drivers, it has stained the company’s name. Now, BMW is recalling luxury models here in the United States over a crash concern.
According to the automaker, the 2018 BMW M5 luxury sedans come with fuel level sensors in the fuel tanks that could become stuck to an in-tank fuel line. If that occurs, then the fuel gauge will display inaccurate fuel levels. If the driver is not aware of the issue, he or she may not fuel the tank and the car will stall unexpectedly, increasing the risk of an accident.
Consumers may contact BMW to learn more about the recall or they can wait until they receive a letter from the company and visit a dealer where the staff will secure the in-tank fuel line.

This Is The Second BMW Recall Impacting M5s
In June, the company recalled M5 vehicles over a fuel pump issue. The recall claimed that the pump could stop working while the M5 was in use, causing the engine to stall. This would increase the risk of an accident.
As you can see, car models are not immune to multiple recalls. That’s why you should act fast whenever a recall impacts your car.
Drivers should take these recalls seriously. Equipment failure that leads to accidents can be serious, and ignoring these recalls can put your life and the lives of your loved ones in danger.
