BMW named in class action lawsuit over defects in cars equipped with N63B4400 engines

BMW

BMW small

Plaintiff bring this class action lawsuit against BMW on behalf of all persons who currently own or lease a 5 Series, 6 Series, 7 Series, X5 and/or X6 model BMW equipped with the 4.4-liter V8 version of the N63B4400 engine, manufactured between 2008 and 2013.

As alleged, these engines suffer reliability issues that result from problems relating to the timing chain, fuel injectors, mass airflow sensors, crankcase vent lines, battery, the engine vacuum pump and low-pressure fuel sensors. Such problems led to more serious concerns such as excessive battery drainage (the “Battery Defect”), oil leakage (the “Oil Defect”) and engine seizure, often causing pistons to crack the engine block due to the high pressure (the “Engine Defect”). Such engine reliability issues have arisen with the N63 Engine regardless of mileage, sometimes even occurring in vehicles with less than 20,000 miles.

I have the same problem with my 750LI. I want to sue BMW they get too much money for these cars to be allowed to rob the people. Crooks is what they are and they should be ashemed that a outstanding company such as BMW would stoop to such a dissappointing behavioral practice to gain and rob the public.

I had the oil housing replaced on my BMW 528i and one month later the timing chain broke and my entire engine had to be replaced. This car had the entire electrical system go out only a few days after I purchased it.

This is bs to spend so much money on their vehicles and we all have these problems yet no kne from bmw has stepped up. I decided today this 2011 550i will be my VERY LAST BMW PURCHASE EVER! I will also be sure to share my start to end experience with anyone I come across looking to buy into bmw. Poor quality exact opposite of what I expected. I had the 2010 550i also last year and it also had a oil issue within a week.

I have had it with my 2012 BMW 550i, that has been inoperable and sitting in my garage for over a year. BMW refuses to be accountable for the N63 engine issues and I refuse to put anymore money into the vehicle. BMW must be accountable.

2012 BMW 750ilx M-Series
Have had problems with oil consumption, battery, vacuum pump, fuel injectors, seals, loss of power while driving, etc. This vehicle has had the transfer case replaced twice and is currently in for service with the same diagnosis. The dealer is attempting to replace the transfer case a third time. Multiple transmission/engine malfunction warning lights have indicated problems in the past. With the latest transfer case failure, there was no warning light to alert me of any problem with the vehicle. I have paperwork on all work performed since I bought the CPO vehicle. The value of the vehicle has plummeted in value as consumers become aware of issues with the N63 engine. BMW has been aware of issues with the N63 for years, but did not recall the vehicles. Instead they attempt to make repairs when problems occur. These are safety and reliability issues. I deserve a solution more meaningful than an offer by BMW of $1,000 towards a new CPO vehicle or $2,000 on a new vehicle.

I purchased my 2012 BMW X6 50i, in 2014. The car had 54k miles on it and body wise was in great condition. After driving it for a couple of weeks I noticed it would jerk upon accelloration. This problem was fixed when I took it to BMW the replaced the fuel injectors. After this issue, I noticed I had a lot of smoke coming from my tail pipe and I always have to refill my oil. I took it to BMW for this diagnosis and they told me the oil consumption for a V8 Twin Turbo was okay for this. months later I had to get the air-conditioning system replaced. A very costly repair almost $4k. The repair shop noticed that my passenger side valve gasket needed to be replaced. This was an $1100.00. this car is a lemon and BMW did not make it well. There is also a recall to the airbag system in which they claim to not have a remedy and it affects your trade in value.

Purchased a 2012 BMW X6M in April of 2016. Immediately had to replace the oxygen sensors, fuel injectors (covered under recall). I was driving and gray smoke started coming out of the back end. Had it towed in and was told the oil chain broke, which caused two rods to break and I now have a hole in my engine block. BMW will not give us a straight answer of how this happens to a car with 56k miles, we are just outside the power train warranty and they are refusing to help or back their products. This occurred Sept 1. I now have a loan on a dead car. I would like to participate in the class action suit.

2012 BMW X6 50i with the same oil consumption issues (refill every 800 miles), not to mention the airbag recall with no parts availability! I have emailed and talked to BMW NA repeatedly and so far have only received $3500 brand loyalty discount on CPO or new purchase since this is my 4th BMW from same dealership. Merely a drop in the bucket for what is owed on the vehicle...

I just spoke to BMW of North America and they are claiming that they willl not cover the n63 stem seals nor battery. They are wanted to charge me over $10K to fix it. There is smoke coming out of the engine and tailpipes. I am afraid for anyone's safety in this car.

My car is a 2011 BMW X6 with n63 engine. 67K miles.

Not the Ultimate driving machine...more like ultimate disappointment machine.

Same issue just happened 6/2/2017: drive train malfunction msg. Car engine shuttering, low battery charge message etc. Basically all the symptoms described if you look up BMW bulletin B001314. I've literally just bought the car as a CPO (36k miles) and have driven less than 3k miles since I bought it. Going to dealership on Monday to get this fixed and potentially request a customer loyalty credit for another vehicle that does not have the N63 engine!

We are having the same issues plus issues with the extended warranty we bought. They supposedly changed our breaks and rotors and less than a year later my rotors are warped. They are telling us this is not covered under our extended warranty that we paid $3000 for to cover the car bumper to bumper. This car is a lemon and they told us it was a certified BMW bought from BMW of Houston North. What a joke, I would like to join the class action lawsuit.

2009 750i just took it to the BMW dealership I'm being told it will need over ten thousand dollars to replace the fuel injectors and the valve stem seals, they claim that some of the injectors were replaced but the ones that aren't working was not,claims the ones that aren't working was not on the customer care program (RECALL), so they are saying that I should replace all of them now, around $7,500 hundred alone, and with every tank of gas I have to add a quart of oil and top off the anti-freeze, it is a beautiful body but the engine needs to be replaced and they should have to eat the cost. count me in on the law suite

In January of 2017 I purchased a 2013 BMW 650i for $44,000. The vehicle had just 27,000 miles on it and was still under the bumper to bumper factory warranty. In the ten (10) months since purchasing this vehicle the "Drivetrain" has "Malfunction"[ed] 22 times. These "Drivetrain Malfunction"[s] have occurred upon first starting the vehicle in the morning before it was even put in gear. They have occurred while driving on flat ground with the cruise control was set at 75mph. They have occurred going up hills and down hills. They have occurred going 0 mph, 80 mph and everywhere in between. Each time I take it to the BMW dealership they come up with a different diagnosis. At the dealerships suggestion and it a cost to me in excess of $5,000, I have replaced ALL of the injectors, coils, sparkplugs, tires, brakes, computers, timing belts etc....etc.....etc.... Over the last ten (10) months this vehicle has spent a total of 57 days in Tom Bush BMW's service department. When a "Drivetrain Malfunction" occurs at highway speeds, the power steering and power brakes fail simultaneously. All efforts to resolve these problems with BMW have been fruitless.

I own a BMW X6 and it's been a nightmare, the car always has oil leaking issues, coolant hoses and many other engine problems.
BMW sent letters about defects and how owners can take their car back to have for them to fix however they never honor what is stated in those letters. It's a total rip off.

I have a 2012 BMW 750LI with 78000 miles and I have to change the oil every 3000 miles to prevent the valve stem and carbon build up issues. This issues is leading to the engines locking up because of the main and rod bearings are starved for oil.
