Bought my car from a different province and...

Wondering if I can take my car in to a dealership in the province im in now for diagnostic, I have a p3090 and p142e code; some ppl mentioned a recall on the HPFP in Canada... so my question is: why would a dealership that has no idea about a car suddenly cover me lol? I mean... would they!?

Apparently there is a 10 year warranty and mines a 2007 :/ just started having issues and here goes 2016! I just have this feeling they'll give me a hard time + being that my cars a 07 and 2017 is around the corner (10years recall); dealerships are gonna be closed for xmas n nye n all so...

Im hoping to go to the stealership with as much info as possible, so hopefulky you guys can help; 2007 335i currently has 220k, initially ontario reg, now quebec :/

Merry xmas, happy new years!

Well, I don't know, you guys seem to consider yourselves a different country.

Seriously though, you may already be outside the warranty based on your mileage.

The coverage is 10 years / 200k km, and applies only on the original pump.
So if you had the original pump replaced already, that'd be another reason why you wouldn't qualify.

Here is the information you're looking for:

I spoke to the dealershop and they say to take it in for diagnostic, he did mention that I did have the hpfp replaced in 2010, was he just trying to get some money out of me for diagnostic?

10years/200k is confusing because sometimes, its 10 years OR 200k and sometimes its 10years and 200k, so if my car was 210k but it was still within 10 years I should be covered....

Thanks for the quick reply, wasnt what I wanted to hear but like I said I rather know everything possible before I go to the dealers.

You're totally misunderstanding. It's 10 years of age or 200,000km - whichever comes first.

Yea, sorry dude, as DBworld said, you're not covered because it's already been replaced. Also you're over 200k KM so it wouldn't be replaced for that reason as well.

Don't bother taking it for a diagnostic unless you plant to have them do the work. Better off finding a good indy mechanic to do it.

You're buying a new HPFP, end of story.

1) HPFP warranty is 10 years/200,000 km, whichever comes first. You have 220k km...warranty is over.
2) Your pump was replaced back in 2010; assuming it's replaced after the issuance of SIB 130309, the HPFP warranty is over as BMW classifies this as a "recall" rather than a "warranty"...
3) Your replaced pump carries a two year parts warranty, which ended in 2012.

No matter how you look at this you'll need a new HPFP out of your pocket, unfortunately.
