One of the main reasons you chose to buy a luxury car is because of all the bells and whistles. But what happens when some of those bells and whistles turn out to be unsafe? Normally, when a car manufacturer finds out that part of a vehicle they manufactured is unsafe, the manufacturer takes steps to recall the unsafe part in order to fix the issue — to make the car safe again. Z Law recently filed a class action alleging that BMW may not have taken appropriate steps to ensure that their vehicles are as safe as you might expect. In the class action, the plaintiffs have alleged that BMW failed to notify its customers of the defects in a timely manner and refused to provide loaner cars while owners are waiting for BMW to fix the defect. Many former and current BMW owners have reported that their defective BMW parts have caused smoke and fires in their vehicles. BMW acknowledges that these defects man leads to fires in their vehicles.
BMW model years 2006 to 2011 may have been affected by the recall including: 128i, 328i, 328xi, 328i xDrive, 525i, 525xi, 528i, 528xi, 530i, 530xi, X3 3.0si, X3 xDrive30i, X5 xDrive30i, Z4 3.0i, Z4 3.0si and Z4 sDrive30i. All have 6 – Cylinder engines.
