BMW halts delivery and sales of M5 and M6

Postby Blaire » Thu Sep 27, 2012 5:50 am

A flawed oil pump could badly damage the engines of some brand new BMW M5 and M6 designs, according to the car maker. Because of this, BMW AG is halting the sales and deliver of the automobiles. It will even be issuing a recall for those vehicles that have already found their way to proprietors. Are you trying to purchase or sell a used or new car?

Looking at possible harm

The oil pump in the 2013 M5 sedan and M6 coupe and Convertible designs may not be working properly, so the automaker has already issued a recall for those that have already been delivered and has stopped the shipping and sales of all other vehicles.

According to BMW, if the problem is left unattended, the drive shaft could separate from the rotor in the flawed engine oil pumps. If that happens, the vehicle will instantly lose oil pressure, which will lead to severe motor harm.

Torque News reported that there have been some engine failures noted in blogs from enthusiasts.

The effort affects the M5 and M6 cars that were built between July and September, 2012, and that are equipped with the brand new BMW S63TU turbocharged 4.4-liter V8 engine. The S63TU delivers 560 horsepower and 502lb-ft of torque.

The automaker is compiling the VIN numbers of the impacted vehicles. At this time, it is not known how many units are affected.

Owners across the nation

Anyone who has not received an automobile yet has been asked to be patient while those who do have their new car have been asked not to drive them until the issue is fixed. BMW is calling all Houston, BMW and other dealerships throughout the country to let them know not to sell any more of the models.

BMW explained that by October, all owners will be informed. The car maker will pay for a flatbed tow truck to take the affected vehicles to the car dealership to get fixed.

Be patient

Purchasers may have to wait longer than expected to get their $100,000 car back since dealerships were also told not to order any more parts for the car, according to Torque News. The automaker may not be able to go anywhere until it produces a new batch of engine oil pumps.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has not yet given a formal recall over the issue.

If you want more information from BMW, just call 800-525-7417.
