2010-2011 BMW 5-Series and Gran Turismo recall

The fuel gauge in your 2010 or 2011 BMW 5-Series sedan or 5-Series Gran Turismo may say you’ve got plenty of gas, but that may not be the case. They are being recalled for a faulty fuel sensor.

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration website reports that 6,080 5-Series sedan and GT models built between January 12 and July 1, 2010 are being recalled for a faulty fuel sensor. In certain cases, the sensor can wedge itself against the tank, which will lead to the fuel gauge reading that the vehicle has more fuel than it actually does. Drivers suddenly saddled with a fuel-free BMW while driving could wind up getting into an accident or being stranded by the side of the road, and that’s not good at all.

The NHTSA website currently shows that BMW still hasn’t provided an appropriate fix for the issue, but when the automaker does, owners will doubtlessly be able to head over to the nearest BMW dealer for a free repair.
