Any Phantom owners have their fuel pumps go out? I've heard this is rather common and a rather expensive fix.

It is common and expensive. I've done the repair many times for locals. The proper way to replace pump/regulators/injectors/wire harness.

I've heard the same thing from other Phantom owners. It sounds like a manufacturing defect since it's so common hence Rolls Royce should cover it. I contacted Rolls Royce and they said they would cover it but then said they need to think about it basically. I'm getting together Phantom owners so we file a group complaint with Rolls Royce. We will see what happens.

I have had mine new since 2007 with 31,000Km on it now, never have had any major problems.

Don't get me wrong, the Phantom is the best car I've ever driven but faulty fuel pumps are unacceptable. Especially on a half million dollar car!

I would try doing it myself. (Fuel pump swamp) If its that old what the heck, give it a shot, tanks are generally very easy to drop. Luckier if theres access through the trunk (which is rare) Worse case scenario you can't do it than just to it to a shop, at least you tried. If you succeed you can brag that you swapped a fuel pump in a phantom and you learned a lot.

Maybe I'll give it a shot. I've also found out that the 760 BMW uses the same pump with the same part number. They are much cheaper through BMW obviously.

Thanks for the input guys!
