BMW Recalls New 2013 M5 and M6 Models for Engine Oil Pump Problem

By Jeff Youngs, October 17, 2012
BMW is recalling 696 high-performance 2013 M5 and 2013 M6 vehicles because of a manufacturing process error resulting in out-of-specification tolerance between the engine oil pump driveshaft and the pump rotor. If the rotor and the driveshaft were to separate, the engine could suffer a sudden loss of oil pressure, causing it to fail, stall, and increase the risk of a crash.

To remedy this problem, BMW will replace the engine oil pump free of charge, starting in October 2012. The affected vehicles were built between July 19, 2012, and September 11, 2012. Concerned owners can contact BMW at 1-800-525-7417, and reference National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) recall campaign ID number 12V475000.
