Problem Summary: BMW IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2013 M5, M6 COUPE, AND M6 CONVERTIBLE VEHICLES, MANUFACTURED FROM JULY 19, 2012, THROUGH SEPTEMBER 11, 2012. DUE TO A MANUFACTURING PROCESS ERROR, THE TOLERANCE BETWEEN THE ENGINE OIL PUMP'S DRIVE SHAFT AND THE PUMP'S ROTOR WAS NOT WITHIN SPECIFICATION. AS A RESULT, THE PUMP'S DRIVESHAFT COULD SEPARATE FROM THE ROTOR.
Consequence: SEPARATION OF THE PUMP'S DRIVESHAFT FROM THE ROTOR COULD LEAD TO A SUDDEN LOSS OF OIL PRESSURE CAUSING THE POSSIBILITY OF COMPLETE ENGINE FAILURE, RESULTING IN AN ENGINE STALL-LIKE CONDITION, INCREASING THE RISK OF A VEHICLE CRASH.
What Owners Should Do: BMW WILL NOTIFY OWNERS, AND DEALERS WILL REPLACE THE OIL PUMP, FREE OF CHARGE. THE SAFETY RECALL IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING OCTOBER 2012. OWNERS MAY CONTACT BMW AT 1-800-525-7417.
