Lemon Law BMW
Driving a BMW Is Great, Until It’s Not.
The California Lemon Law Works to Protect Your Investment … and Safety.
When it comes to owning a new or CPO Vehicle, you want one that you know is safe and will last. That’s why so many of your fellow Californians have opted to get behind the wheel of a BMW.
With their luxurious features, high-tech amenities, and stylish design, BMWs reflect status and are often referred to as “the ultimate driving machines.”
But even among the most refined cars, a lemon can sometimes slip in. Those who unwittingly own one know the frustrations that come along with it. Persistent engine problems … endless electrical glitches … unrelenting transmission headaches are just a few of the complaints.
If your warrantied BMW exhibits recurring defects, you could benefit greatly — financially and with peace of mind — by calling the law offices of Strategic Legal Practices. We can help turn your potential lemon into a refund, a replacement car or lucrative cash compensation.
Here are 8 of the top BMW problems (and symptoms) serious enough to warrant a California Lemon Law claim.
- Electrical Problems — malfunctioning sensors, faulty wiring, entertainment/navigation system glitches
- Engine, Transmission and Drivetrain Troubles — oil leaks, overheating, flawed timing chains, rough shifting, complete engine failure
- Cooling System Glitches — coolant leaks, radiator damage, impaired water pumps leading to engine overheating
- Fuel System Malfunctions — fuel pump failures, fuel leaks, injector breakdowns causing poor performance or stalling
- Suspension and Steering Complications — control arm problems, failing ball joints and bushings, damaged shocks or struts
- Brake System Failures — premature wear, squealing or grinding noises, ABS malfunctions
- Window or Door Issues — inoperative power windows or door handles and difficulties with locks
- Air Conditioning and Heating Defects — refrigerant leaks, compressor failures, malfunctioning climate controls
How the California Lemon Law Protects Your BMW.
The Lemon Law in California states that your vehicle must have “noncomformities,” which are defined as any defect or malfunction that is covered by the original factory warranty. If any of these problematic “noncomformities” affect your car’s use, safety or value — even after a number of repair attempts have been made — you may be eligible to file a claim.
As one of California’s premier Lemon Law litigators, the expert attorneys at Strategic Legal Practices will work with you and fight for you to get a buyback of a replacement vehicle, a refund or a cash settlement that includes all costs you may have incurred.
Know your rights when it comes to a faulty BMW.
You’ve shelled out good money for your new or CPO Vehicle, and as long as it’s under warranty, you expect smooth driving. But by the number or recalls, class-action suits, and Lemon Law claims filed against BMW, you know that’s not always the case. For example:
- One of the largest recalls for 2007-2012 BMWs was for fuel pump wiring problems. It affected over 150,000 vehicles that suffered from repeated fuel leaks and issues with the engine stalling and restarting.
- A major defect in BMW timing chains resulted in a class-action lawsuit affecting a variety of models including the X and Z series, 228i coupes and convertibles, 320i and 328i sedans, as well as 428i and 528i makes. In these cases, the broken timing chain caused the engine to not start, or to fail while driving putting all riders in severe danger.
- A 2020 Lemon Law case was filed in the U.S. District Court of Los Angeles after BMW NA allegedly refused to repurchase or replace a plaintiff’s after seven trips to the repair shop for the same issue. The complainant asserted that BMW breached its 4-year, 50,000 warranty and the provisions of the California Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act to “repair, replace or repurchase” a defective vehicle.
These are just three examples of the legal actions BMW has faced. Among the most commonly reported models are the 135i, 335i, 535i, Z4 Roadster, 3 Series, 5 Series, 7 Series, I Series Coup, X5, X6, but the truth is that any model with recurring problems could be a lemon. Even yours.
