Editor's Overview

The all-new 2018 BMW M5 comes packing the most power and features to date. Its revamped V8 makes 600 horsepower, and in a first for an M5, BMW's pinnacle performance sedan is all-wheel drive. That enables it to reclaim the acceleration crown from the Mercedes-AMG E 63 S with 0-60-mph blasts of 3.2 seconds, all while providing tremendous grip.

NHTSA Campaign:
18V473000
Summary:
BMW of North America, LLC (BMW) is recalling certain 2018 BMW M5 vehicles. The fuel level sensor in the fuel tank may become stuck against an in-tank fuel line, causing the fuel gauge to display an inaccurate and possibly larger amount of fuel than is actually available.

An incorrect fuel reading may lead to the vehicle stalling and increase the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
BMW will notify owners, and dealers will secure the in-tank fuel line to keep the fuel line from contacting the fuel level sensor, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 2018. Owners may contact BMW customer service at 1-800-525-7417.
