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.
