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.

  5. Elizabeth Robinson says:

    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.

  14. Dee says:

    Once I go to BMW for the CCP and they tell me I require engine replacement, what should happen after? I got my engine repairs done a yr ago by BMW and still have the same oil consumption issues do I qualify for the engine replacement in the settlement.

    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.

    How can I get in this class action? I found out too late

    ADMIN – Hi Randy,

    You can’t

  21. David Martinez says:

    I just saw this class action suit, is there also a recall. I own a 2013 bmw 5 series that is part of this.
    Thank You,

    ADMIN – Hi David,

    For recalls contact BMW directly.

  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.

  23. Todd Womack says:

    I submitted a claim on 10/09/18 but have not received any reply yet from the claim administrator. How much longer will it be before any communication on my claim is returned to me? This seems like a long time for the claims to still be pending (6 months).

    ADMIN – Hi Todd, Sorry to hear that. The amount of time that it takes to get your rebate varies a lot. Sometimes it is as soon as 2 months after the settlement closing date. Sometimes it takes much longer. Also, please note that we (classactionrebates.com) are *not* the Settlement Administrator of this case. We only post opportunities for potential Class Members of various settlements on this website. You’d also be hard put to contact the Settlement Administrator of this case, as it appears they’ve already taken down their website. As a last resort, however, we recommend that eligible claimants check the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (“NAUPA”) website via www.unclaimed.org for updates on when late claimants can claim their funds — unless the Settlement Administrator already disbursed any unclaimed portion of the fund via charity donations. Best of luck. 

  24. Darryl Everett says:

    Hi. I presently have a 2009 bbmw 750li that I purchased 8-1-17, in which time, I’ve had these problems as this settlement informed of. In fact, my vehicle is sitting on the side of the highway as I speak. I have filled forms out to be apart of this class suit before the court’s final deposition. I was sent other other papers/forms back via mail, requesting I fill them out, which I did. I have not heard from them to date. TO WHOM THIS MAY CONCERN: PLEASE, COULD SOMEONE HELP ME WITH MY BMW 750LI. I MAY BE REACHED AT 717215-7796 ANYTIME..or D_and_r1@yahoo.com

    ADMIN – Hi, Darryl. As a rule, if anyone misses the claims deadline, they can no longer file a claim for that particular settlement.  As a last resort, however, we recommend that eligible claimants check the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (“NAUPA”) website via www.unclaimed.org for updates on when late claimants can claim their funds — unless the Settlement Administrator already disbursed any unclaimed portion of the fund via charity donations. Best of luck. 

  25. Chenier Alston says:

    Hello I bought my 2010 BBMW 750Li in 2015. My mileage was 34,000. After two months, the car was in the shop for an oil consumption problem. BMW of Orlando Park claimed to have fixed it, but I kept returning it to BMW for the same problem and they kept telling me the same thing as far as fixing it. Last year, I received a letter about the class action law suit. Now that the mileage has increased on the car, I have been told that I have to come out of pocket to have my engine replaced. The problem has increased and the car isn’t running as a result of this recalled engine. Is there someone that I can speak with directly?

    ADMIN – Hi, Chenier. As a rule, if anyone misses the claims deadline, they can no longer file a claim for that particular settlement.  As a last resort, however, we recommend that eligible claimants check the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (“NAUPA”) website via www.unclaimed.org for updates on when late claimants can claim their funds. Best of luck. 

  26. Kay Beydoun says:

    I have a 2012 BMW 650 with low miles. I’ve had issues with BMW. They said I have to replace my engine. I replaced it and ordered my engine. Waited eight months to receive it. Disgusted in the services that I’ve got from them: 8 months to get a motor, no car, all inconvenience. Very disappointed in how I was treated by BMW.

  27. Tiffany says:

    I recently bought a 2012 BMW 750I and had this issue with the oil consumption and engine. While they did replace my engine, I had to pay $3000 for the oil consumption/leak problem prior to them diagnosing the vehicle with the engine problem. I purchased the vehicle Nov 1 2018 – unfortunately, after the class action claim deadline. Is there anything else I can do?

    ADMIN – Hi Tiffany, Sorry to hear that. As a rule, if anyone misses the claims deadline, they can no longer file a claim for that particular settlement. As a last resort, however, we recommend that eligible claimants check the National Association of Unclaimed Property Administrators (“NAUPA”) website via http://www.unclaimed.org for updates on when late claimants can claim their funds — unless the Settlement Administrator of this case already disbursed any unclaimed funds to some charity. Best of luck.

  28. Eugene Garrett says:

    Please tell me my next alternative since I qualify for the class action but missed the deadline on Oct 12, 2018. Have a BMW 2012 N63 engine blown.

    ADMIN – Hi Eugene, Sorry to hear that.

  29. David Pitts says:

    I have a 2012 BMW V8 turbo and I’m having the same issues and have spent a lot of money on repairs. I took it to the BMW dealership in Mobile Alabama and they told me BMW advised them to run checks on the engine with the smoking and oil usage. They told me that the engine needs to be replaced and I would have to pay a percentage of the cost that was $6800 dollars. Then they called back and told me they test-drove it and it still smokes. So BMW said the turbos need to be replaced because of wear, and the total now is 9900 dollars. I don’t think it’s right that I should have to pay this since it’s a fault in their engine. I have talked to the customer relations department about it and keep getting brushed off. I’m not going to let this problem go. The next step is to hire me an attorney. Don’t know what else to do. I have too much money invested in this car. I will never own another one.

    ADMIN – Hi David, Sorry to hear about all your troubles with your car. If you did end up filing a lawsuit, we hope you finally got (or are getting) a fair deal.

  30. Dominic says:

    Hello my battery is failing is it to late to get a new battery on 2011 550i?

    ADMIN – Hi Dominic, Sorry to hear that. Best to go straight to your dealer to ask about battery replacements. You already missed the claims deadline by a year, as of your posting date.

  31. LaToya Stewart says:

    Hello, today is the FIRST that I’ve been notified or heard about this class action lawsuit and the issues with my 550 consuming oil. I have been in for service at least 2-3 times over the last year–even spending $2800 to repair an oil leak and NO one has mentioned this to me! I don’t want money….I just want to ensure that my car is properly repaired. How do I go about getting the repair done?

    ADMIN – Hi LaToya, Sorry to hear about your troubles. Sounds like you need information straight from the horse’s mouth. Have you asked your dealer – or your friends – about the best repair options? Good luck.

  32. Matt says:

    Is there a way to initiate a new class action regarding the same problem I am having with the N62 engine?

    ADMIN – Hi Matt, To date, we haven’t heard of a similar class action suit against BMW – except, for their N62 engine this time. You can always google this and see if other owners have similar complaints. You can start a class action suit as the sole representative though, I believe. Good luck.

  33. Gail Baker says:

    I never received a form for this class action law suit

  34. Richard says:

    Hi. I just saw the law suit for my 2013 550i. I never signed up for the class action. Can I bring my car in for excessive oil consumption and smoking?

    ADMIN – Hi Richard, Sorry, but it sounds like you have no benefits coverage, as you yourself stated you didn’t sign up as a Class Member. Also, even if we wanted to help you, we couldn’t. We’re just a class action newspaper — not the Claims Administrator of this case.

  35. Paris Lewis says:

    I just heard of this today. I never received any information on this. Please help.

    ADMIN – Hi Paris, Sorry, but your comment came in nearly two years late. The Claims deadline expired in October 2018, and the settlement website has already been taken down. Also, even if we wanted to help you, we couldn’t. We’re just a class action newspaper — not the Claims Administrator of this case.

  36. Jason says:

    I have the same issue with my 2011 BMW X6M (s63 engine). Is my vehicle not included in this lawsuit? I called BMW 2 days ago and they tell me it isn’t covered and then today my seal blew and destroyed my engine. I assume although don’t know that the seals are the same in my M vehicle as what is in the n63.

    ADMIN – Hi Jason, Sorry to hear about your troubles. However, the settlement stipulates only related or excessive oil changes and battery drainage — nothing about seals blowing.

  37. liz contreras says:

    Who is the attorney here, and how do we get in contact?

    ADMIN – Hi Liz, Sorry, but your comment came in nearly two years late. The Claims deadline expired in October 2018, and the settlement website has already been taken down.
