2008 BMW 5 Series 535i 4dr Sedan (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6M)
Just got the 535 back after the recall- -engine malfunction--and got stuck on the side of the freeway. This is the third time, and it's the second replacement of the high pressured fuel pump. So it's the third fuel pump on this 5 series. I love the drive, but am concerned about the reliability factor since I've been stuck on the side of the road three times--NOT FUN! If I get another BMW, maybe one without the turbo, since that seems to be the cause of the engine malfunction.
I love the drive and the fact that with a sporty drive, I get 18 city and 26 highway. There's that surge of power from 50 to 70 in a matter of seconds with the help of the bi-turbo, AWESOME!
Let's make sure that the third installed high pressure fuel pump is it. Otherwise, I hope BMW pays for the fourth, and the fifth, and the sixth
