BMW named in class action lawsuit over excessive oil consumption that leads to battery failure

BMW

 BMW small

Defendants designed, manufactured, distributed, marketed, sold, and leased vehicles equipped with the 4.4-liter V-8 turbocharged “N63” engine (the “Class Vehicles”) to Plaintiff and Class Members.

As alleged, since 2008, if not before, Defendants knew or should have known that the Class Vehicles contained one or more design and/or manufacturing defects, including, but not limited to, defects contained in the Class Vehicles’ engine that cause them to improperly burn off and/or consume abnormally high amounts of oil (the “Oil Consumption Defect”) and cause premature wear of the engine battery, resulting in the need to replace the battery as often as every 10,000 or one year, well before the useful life of an automotive battery (the “Battery Defect”).

The Oil Consumption Defect is a safety concern because it prevents the engine from maintaining the proper level of engine oil, and causes voluminous oil consumption that cannot be reasonably anticipated or predicted. Therefore, this Oil Consumption Defect is unreasonably dangerous because it can cause engine failure while the Class Vehicles are in operation at any time and under any driving conditions or speeds, thereby exposing the Class Vehicle drivers, their passengers and others who share the road with them to serious risk of accidents and injury.

Moreover, because the Oil Consumption Defect can cause the Class Vehicles to consume unacceptably high amounts of engine oil, the rate of oil consumption for some Class Vehicles can be as high as one (1) quart of oil per 750 miles driven. The Oil Consumption Defect thus requires the addition of substantial amounts of oil between scheduled oil changes and can result in engine damage. Indeed, as a result of the Oil Consumption Defect, the potential safety hazards, and Defendants’ refusal to acknowledge its existence and fix the problem, many consumers have reported that they have resorted to purchasing an extra supply of oil and carrying it with them in their trunk at all times when driving.

As alleged, the premature battery wear is the result of excessive energy demands placed on the battery by the N63 engine’s cooling system components. Despite knowledge of the N63’s increased energy demands, Defendants failed to incorporate in their initial design a power source that could adequately provide for the N63’s energy demands, instead providing an insufficient 90 ampere hour (Ah) battery as original equipment.

Class: All persons or entities in the United States who are current or former owners and/or lessees of BMW vehicles equipped with the N63 engine

I have a bmw 2009 x5 4.8 and is unbelievable the times I have been driving home with my kids and the engine fails, the # of times that I see the leak coming from the buttons the turn the lights on the sunroof nonetheless how rough it has been running. I wish I only new these were common. Just last week I received a letter that their was a recall of the fuel pump in my car. I took my car for service and they cannot still find what is going on because my car is one of the thousands with the engine failing. It's just excruciating to me that being my only vehicle for me and my kids. Why wouldn't bmw send us owners a notification of these problems in the engine before we spend so much money trying to find the problem without succeeding. This is outrageous

too much oil consumption on my 2011 BMW GT 550i

2009 BMW 750LI 4.4L twin turbo. The engine in my vehicle is consuming oil at a rate around 1QT/750 miles. This is normal city driving. Typically reaching speeds of only 55 mph.

My 2009 750i burns a guard every 500 miles it's ridiculous. $ 9.09 per quart not to mention the dealer charging 169 for oil caging I'm spending over 699 year in oil ??!!

It is totally unreasonable the amount of oil my 2011 BMW 550i GT consumes. Recently I purchased an oil change and within 400 miles, the low oil warning light came on. I just thought the dealer did not add enough oil during the oil change so I purchased a quart of oil and the warning light went off. To my surprise, again, the warning light came on prior to 400 miles. The dealer could give no reasonable answer so in an attempt to protect the car's motor, I purchased 4 quarts of oil which I keep in my trunk. Whenever it is necessary to use a quart, I replace it within two days. I didn't purchase my vehicle to store additional oil. The oil robs me of needed space whenever I drive.

2010 bmw 750i with replaced battery within 1.5yrs and add at least a court of oil monthly. My oil level warning is currently on and have appt with Service dealer in the morning. My CPO warranty is over January 1 2016 and I'm concerned about the extra costs and definitely was not notified of this lemon.

We have a 2007 750Li purchased used in 2010. The oil change has been changed per BMW recommendations. We have been adding oil between oil changes since we got the car. This is very surprising considering the "quality" of the car and the cost also.

2009 750LI, Same issue. 1 qt. / 750 miles. I have to take 2 extra quarts on any road trip to ensure I make it. Battery discharge problems too, battery is only 24 mo. old. I have read BMW'S service manual for the N63 engine. It is recommended to put 2 full quarts in when the "Add 1 Quart" warning comes on making 10.5 quarts total capacity. This helps to make it between 1000 and 1500 miles between low oil warnings.

I have called and emailed BMW of North America repeatedly to no avail. I have begged them since day one to listen to me that I have an oil problem. They did "engine" work finally right before my warranty expired, however they would not replace everything and I was forced to spend thousands of dollars in repairs and I still have problems! I'm pissed beyond words. They need to correct this.

2011 750 Li x, 90k miles, 1 quart per 1500 miles, it started at 50k miles and progressively got worse. When I would take it in for service, technicians said it was normal, and offered to put a couple quarts of oil in the trunk. 6 BMW's and 30 years later I am done owning one. I would understand a defect, and some help to fix it, however, BMW corporate has turned their nose at us owners.

I have 2011 550i and it burns a quart of oil every 750-800 miles. When i brought it up to a service advisor they told me the same thing..."It's normal". That was about a year ago. I just happened to speak to a coworker with a 2013 X6 4.4 and he stated that BMW is able to run an "oil consumption test" to confirm excessive burning. In his situation they replaced either replaced the valves or the turbos. May have been the turbos being faulty and causing the excess burn off. Nonetheless I may go that route and request a test to see what they say as I have an extended warranty.

BMW will not except any responsibility they say it's normal for these cars to burn oil. Putting 2-4 quarts of oil in the car between oil changes is not normal.

I have a 2011 BMW 750 LxI. We had the CCP done in 2015 at 72000 Miles. Engine failure at 75000 Miles. Had to pay $7500 for replacement engine. I talked to BMW of N. America twice. Got very belligerent reception with denial of the problem. Had the same Oil problems before CCP. Have had problems with the car ever since. It is in the Shop every other month with one or another problem. Right now it is in the shop for Battery replacement. The 90 Ah Battery is shut. Needs replacement. Got the quote for $ 530 to replace Battery. I bought new warranty for replacement engine. $2300 for 24 months. I have to pay deductible for every shop visit. And by the way I was German before I became an american citizen. I also consulted with a Lawyer in this matter but got nowhere other than telling me to beat it.

I have a 2006 750LI that is burning through oil at about 1 qt per 700miles. I have been told it's the Valve stem seal. This has cause my engine to run hot, and thus I have had to replace the cooling fan, and eventually the main ECU. I have spent thousands of dollars and now I have had the cooling line that runs from the front of the motor to the rear go out. I have not replaced this cause I have gotten tired of spending so much $ trying to keep it running,

How can this be on such an expensive car? It's one thing to deal with the fuel consumption, but to add a quart of oil every week and stock extra quarts in the trunk so you don't blow your engine is crazy.

My 2010 BMW 550iGT has 68,000 miles. It burns a quart of oil every 800 miles. I carry two extra bottles in the trunk. The dealer completed the CCP, which seems to have eliminated the transmission error message, but did nothing for the oil issue. He quoted me $6,960 to replace the valve seals. When I asked about trade in, he said that without the valve repairs, he could give me $8,000 in trade. That is $14,000 less than the vehicle is worth. I would trade if he made a decent offer. As it is, I would like to join the class action suit as BMW clearly has no desire to make things right with their customers.

2011 X5 TT- I need to add a quart of oil a week Dealer says it's a known problem due to the seals wearing away as a result of the fuel in the U.S. I am told that the oil is not leaking out, but building up "somewhere" and the vehicle will just stop dead at some point. Also, not covered under warranty or recall. Should this be true, I will get rid of all 4 of our BMW's and never buy another one.

I have a 2011 BMW X5. I have been going through oil like crazy. The car is in immaculate condition otherwise. It has always been serviced an authorized BMW dealership. Despite complaining about oil loss and black smoke coming out of my tailpipe for over a year and a half, I am now being told that there is $20,000 worth of repairs That are needed. This is unacceptable for a car that cost nearly $80,000 and has less than 80,000 miles on it. My extended BMW warranty just expired two months ago, and now BMW is expecting me to pay $20,000 in repairs for a problem they seem to have known about, and for a problem that they should've diagnosed several months ago, while my warranty was still in effect. This is wholly unacceptable. Beware consumers. This is a big issue with the company that I thought was very reputable.

2011 X5 4.4, 74k miles. Only owned this for about a year and began getting the "complimentary top-off" every 2-4 weeks shortly after purchase. BMW techs are recorded on my phone telling me it's normal because it's a "high performance engine." Left it at the dealership for a week in April to determine if there was a consumption issue. Dealership put 500 miles on it doing something, found no external leaks and said it was fine. Fast forward to November and it's now $18,000 in repairs due to 3 different engine leaks due to - surprise! - excessive oil consumption. Extended warranty (non-OEM) is supposed to be covering it, but who knows what other damage this has caused or what other trouble can be expected.

Just recently, about a month after having the vehicle the oil consumption, became ridiculous. Spending anywhere between $45-$60/month, just on oil. The oil BMW, tops off at no charge, usually only last about 2-3 days. So I purchase a heavier oil, and again I can get 7-8 days out of it, before adding more.

Oil container in my trunk. I have to add 1 to 2 quarts of oil ever 700 to 900 miles which is costing me a great deal because of the oil consumption. And after reading up on the problems that not only I but a lot of other people are having with this situation to oil consumption to me it wasn't a great purchase decision on this type of vehicle. A vehicle question this much and being German made is very surprising that it has this problem. The reason why I purchase this vehicle and I probably speak for a lot of other people is that these type of cars BMW that is it's supposed to be sturdy and have longevity which in turn you will have the maintenance it less because of the cost Factor on these type of vehicles which is worse they're advertising to buy this type of vehicle because of that. Obviously that's false and it seems like the manufacturing of BMW's don't really care about the consumer issues that they're having with this type of vehicle.

Dealer purchased 2013 BMW 4.8 X5. with only 30k still under warranty. Took the issues to service twice where this vehicle had burned 3/4 of the oil tank on a trip from Charlotte to Orlando. They have completed a oil viscosity test and found oil dripping from both turbo chargers. They have replaced both turbo chargers with the most current version of 2016. Performed another oil test and found this had not resolved the issue. Currently replacing all the valve stems with an upgraded or better version. Waiting on the 3rd oil change to determine if this has resolved my vehicle engines issue more to come......

Same issue with 2011 750LiX. Light came on to top oil around 48000 miles. Took car to the dealership in Charlotte. Did consumption test, topped up the oil and Imwas asked to bring NGOs it back after 1000 miles. The next visit after the 1000 miles did not show much evidence of an oil burn. Car has now got 50000 miles on it and is out of warranty. Took it to the dealership for an issues with the doors locking up. They called me after a couple of days to tell me they have detected a very bad oil burn and have to change the rings! Fortunately BMW has agreed to do the work at no cost because it reported the original issue before expiration of the warranty. Service advisor just called that the work is completed but not sure that it will continue completely fix the oil consumption. I am disgusted and disappointed. Spent a lot of money to purchase this car and was looking forward to driving it feels r several years. Didn't think you would have to worry about possible serious engine problems because of poor oil consumption. I will like to join a lawsuit and would appreciate any information.

My name is Roel. I bought a certified pre owned 2012 BMW 550i. Since opening the vehicle, I have to put 1 quart every 150 miles. This is terrible I did the math. I am spending 75 dollars a month just on extra oil. My batter has been affected as well. My electronic devices are turnt off to a minimum. For example my a/c does not blow past level 2. Also my Bluetooth and charge ports doesn't work. To install a battery I have to take it to BMW and I got quoted 700 bucks, because the battery has to be programmed. I have called BMW USA and they gave me the cold shoulder. I will never ever buy another BMW product. I am expressing my concerns to anyone that tries to buy a BMW.

My wife owns a 2013 BMW 650i and it sucks up oil like you wouldn't believe! We dump in a quart every 4 weeks or so and we buy and keep 2 quarts in the trunk at all times. A red warning light on the oil measurement is always on. Where does all the oil go to?

Hi I have a 2009 bmw 750i. I add a quart of oil every 300 miles. I'm so sick and tired of this. Dealer told me that was normal. I don't know what to do next. Can anyone please tell me what to do. Is it possible to have bmw North America fix this issue even though my car now has 130k miles?

My 2012 GT 550i began consuming a quart of oil per 2000 miles at 35,000 miles on the clock and just after the warranty expired! The dealer said the valve seals needed to be replaced at a cost of around $7,000. Are they crazy? I only have 42,000 miles on this car at present and all scheduled maintenance has been performed! This is my 5th BMW and the only one that has had a problem like this. There is clearly a significant defect in this engine. BMW needs to step up since this is such a widespread problem. I love this model but the oil consumption problem is really disappointing. I wonder how many people have sold their BMWs sooner than planned because of this problem? I'm certainly considering it but I don't want to push the problem onto another luckless consumer.

I have a 2010 750i with 110000 on it. I noticed a greater oil usage at 80,000 miles. now it is using a qt every 450 miles and smokes after idling - embarrassing for a 100K car. Seems like everything is going now - AC stopped working, coolant leaks, replaced expansion tank due to split seam, etc...really tired of this car now.

I have a 2011 750 LI with oil consumption problem the car has 73000 miles I change the oil it reads full on the dash when you do oil measuring the line starts dropping after a week or two within less than a month and 1000 miles it will ask you to add oil or oil level is at the minimum level. I love the car but the oil consumption is unreal at least 2 quarts for every 1000 miles I drive.

I have a 2013 750 Li BMW Sports Model. This is an absolutely beautiful Blue/Black car. I waited years to invest in my dream car and found this one. I purchased it for my 50th birthday in January 2016, with about 47,000 miles on it. Just two months later, the oil consumption issue showed its face. After doing research and finding out about this problem, I went to the dealership asking that they fix it while under the warranty that expired at 50,000 miles, The dealership made repairs under the existing warranty stating the problem was resolved. Nope!! After having to frequently top off the oil, my BMW is currently at the same dealership that is quoting me $2500, to replace a leaking oil pan gasket due to the same problem as before. Is it really leaking or just consuming an enormous amount of oil? I'm thoroughly confused, disappointed, and angry. I'm afraid if I pay to have it serviced again, the issue will still remain. Yes, add me to the lawsuit.

I am having the same problems with mine, oil consumption ,coolant system ,tramission, engine leaks. BMW said "it was preexist problems" is what .the BMW dealer services of Chattanooga stated " their wasn't nothing wrong with my BMW." My car had a warranty and the claim was denied total charge they quoted to get all the issues fixed right now is $15,908.28. The highest cost of is the $7,4456.80 for parts, just to fix it, the labor alone is $1,665.80. This is BMW cost for fixing a vehicle they made knowing this car had all these problems that have been complained about and reported.
