2008 BMW X5 Recalls
All modern vehicles use some type of power assist for the braking system. The 8 cylinder models being recalled use a vacuum pump, connected to the power booster by a vacuum hose, to provide the necessary assist. The vacuum pump may leak a small amount of lubricating oil into the vacuum hose and this contamination could result in a loss of power assist, leading to increased stopping distances. Dealers will correct this concern by replacing the brake vacuum line with an improved version.
The fuel pump may fail and cause the engine to stall. Dealers will replace the fuel pump inside the fuel tank free of charge to resolve the problem.
The incorrect stabilizer bar in the rear suspension was installed during manufacturing. Dealers will install the proper bar free of charge to resolve the concern.
