This lawsuit is about model-year 2004 to 2010 U.S. specification BMW 5 Series (E60 and E61) vehicles (“Class Vehicles”). The lawsuit alleges that certain electronic components located in the spare tire well of the trunk in the Class Vehicles are susceptible to water damage, caused either by clogged sunroof drainage tubes or by some other means of water ingress (the alleged “Defect”). BMW AG, which manufactures BMW vehicles, and BMW NA, which distributes and warrants BMW vehicles in the United States, deny these allegations and stand behind and support their products.
If you are seeking repair/replacement you must take your vehicle to BMW within one year of the settlement approval
