Nissan, BMW Recall Vehicles To Fix Problems With Fuel Pumps

DETROIT (AP) – Nissan and BMW are recalling more than 94,000 vehicles because the fuel pumps can fail and cause stalling.

The recalls cover 76,000 Nissan Rogues from the 2014 model year and another 18,000 BMW 2, 3 and 4 series models from 2014 and some 4 series cars from 2015.

Both automakers say in documents posted Friday by government safety regulators that improper nickel plating inside the pump can cause them to fail. That can cause engines to stall and increase the risk of a crash. Both companies used pumps made by the same supplier, Robert Bosch.

Nissan will notify owners in May and BMW will start in late April. Both will replace pumps for free.

The problem was discovered through complaints and warranty claims.

Neither manufacturer reported any crashes or injuries.
