Why no class action suit???????????? Fit and finish, eye-catching, performance off the line, cornering, ride,comfort and convenience, it has it all! In this case, running higher levels of boost psi on your turbochargers will likely increase your chances of Wastegate failure. If the bad feul pump causes damage to other parts they should be covered as well. Even Honda Accord got only average. The twin turbo of the 335 allows you to pass vehicles 2-3 times as fast and has tons of 'pep'. Anyways, back to the point.
Per my message above, I had an error code for a boost leak. From research on the net it seems this is yet another common fault on the N54 engine. Is there a recall warranty covering the Vanos problem? The connector for the positive battery cable connector and the corresponding terminal on the fuse box may degrade over time. If you are out of warranty these can be terribly expensive to fix. Maybe everyone just drives the crap out of these cars and expect it to work like its brand new every time they get behind the wheel.
You can't wait to get into one, can you? What about all the happy 335 drivers out there having a blast with zero problems at all? Over time, the high current flow and heat from electrical resistance may lead to a breakage of the connection, and a loss of electrical power to the vehicle. This is replacement is usually 15+ hours of labor. All European cars are expensive to maintain after the warranty is over. Really not happy right now. They took my info, did a credit check, I got approved on the 24th of April. I can live with that. I have 64,500 miles and the car is great.
Dropped the car off at the dealer Friday night and was told it was fixed Saturday. Parts: 210 Labor hr: 45 min. They said the previous owner already had the fuel pump replaced, it is like new. I was traumatized by this and have contacted an attorney here in S. Also las year Novembe 2012 I had a problem with the fuel pump and the dealer replaced it do to a recall. Is there another dealer nearby? The total number of vehicles being recalled is now 516,791.
Why do N54 Fuel Injectors get clogged? Too complicated a car to own. My 335 has been wonderfull to drive with only a leaking hose replaced so far. The high pressure can either cause the chargepipe to leak boost pressure which will cause a loss of horsepower , or completely crack or pop. I shall be picking up the car this evening, desperately hoping that they would have fixed it. Same day I got it out of the shop, started the car up and it started shaking violently. If there is a leak, you will usually see a buildup of oil underneath. Had to replace windshield sealer.
I cannot overstate my enthusiasm for this new diesel power plant. They are quoting me R 35 000 to repair and have changed the entire deal on my new car despite signing the order and the deal. I will be registered in Arizona and working in Washington may register it there. But I checked the service reports and this car has had its fuel pump replaced 4 times!!! Very scary for a woman, alone at night hours from home. I think Porsche is the only semi-reliable German carmaker, but even my Porsche cabrio had an engine oil leak with only 7K miles. These cars are problematic money pits.
I have one close to me that I rarely use for the same reason. At this point, I Just wish they would take back the car and let me walk away. If there is a manufactures recommended repair bulletin, could you please tell me how to obtain it to have it fixed. Road tested and no boost leak, but still a little rough idle and some stuttering when maxing the throttle. The A6s are and have been lemons from the start.
Like the lemon law, the legal help is free. I purchased a 2008 cpo 335i Sedan in February of this year with 49k on it. The smooth and quick 328i is a delight to drive, with a refined powertrain, agile handling and a firm, yet supple and controlled ride. Summary This recall involves aftermarket parts sold by Valeo. If you are trying to run 22psi, yes this is more likely to happen. He had the fuel pump replaced and two weeks later he was in an accident, minor impact and the car lit on fire.
