Bad News! - BMW 1 series worst reliability record ever

Consumer Reports has identified the BMW 1 series with the worst reliability record ever. The problem mainly lays with the High Pressure Fuel Pump (HPFP), but the real problem is the company can't find a fix for it. They have tried five iterations without any success.

BMW will replace it without any questions asked and has even given a 5-year 120K miles warranty on the part. The real problem is the car stops dead in its tracks when the HPFP fails. Imagine what's going to happen to you if you are in heavy fast freeway traffic?

I'm afraid I'm out of the market for a car with these dangerous problems.
