Case Name

Bang v. BMW of North America LLC and Bavarian Motor Works,
Case No. 2:15-cv-06945-MCA-SCM,
District Court for the District of New Jersey.

Case Summary

This lawsuit involves model-year 2009-2014 BMW 5 series, 6 series, 7 series, X5, and X6 vehicles equipped with N63 engines that were purchased or leased in the United States or Puerto Rico (the “Class Vehicles”). The lawsuit alleges that the Class Vehicles consume excessive amounts of engine oil, requiring additional oil changes and the need for adding engine oil between regular oil changes, as well as substantial battery drain potentially causing premature battery failure. BMW AG, which manufactures BMW vehicles, and BMW NA, which distributes and warrants BMW vehicles in the U.S., deny these allegations and stand behind and support their products.

    I have a 2011 Active Hybrid with the total care package completed, still problems, and now the hybrid battery went out and it’s under 100,000 miles and under 10 years. Will the hybrid battery be included or will they buy back the car? I am still paying for a car I can’t drive and they are still saying they can’t help me.

    ADMIN – Hi Elizabeth,

    I believe this relates to the regular battery and not the hybrid battery but reach out to the class action administrator to obtain clarification.

    ADMIN – Hi Dee,

    If you still have the same issues that tells me the engine you received was also defective. Call class counsel.

  15. William Thomas says:

    I have a 2011 BMW 750Li has 45,000 miles. I complained about the excessive oil burning and the smoke coming out the tail pipes when the vehicle has less than 35,000 miles. dealer tells me it needs valve guide seals with cost over $14,000 and the vehicle is now out of warranty. Because of the excessive oil burning, has caused the oxygen sensors to go bad. Now on top of oil burning it also burns a lot of gas. Dealer keeps telling me BMW will eventually replace the engine, my cost will be about $4,000 they tell me !!!!

    Any idea if the case is conclude and if indeed BMW plans on replacing engines?

    ADMIN – Hi William,

    If your car qualifies per the terms disclosed in the settlement file and wait. Otherwise you can exclude yourself and get a lemon law attorney.

  22. Robert Love says:

    I was ready to buy an engine replacement, but now they are BACKORDERED until July 2019. My engine is exhibiting signs of oil fouling (rough running, etc…), BWM Richmond offer to “top-off” my oil, but that is not truly a solution. Replacing valve stem seals at their cost is excessive, but it seems the BMW machine is pretty much kicking everyone to the curb.
