BMW Oil - Fully Executed SA

 


A lawsuit is currently pending against BMW for N63 engine oil consumption defect, which alleges the BMW N63 engine (found in vehicles such as the 550 and 750) consumes excessive engine oil and suffers from premature battery-draining problems.

Owners of these BMW car models complain that they have to add oil between oil changes. Although BMW may say oil consumption between changes is normal, however Consumer Reports says not everyone agrees.

Cars under warranty shouldn’t burn oil – Consumer Reports

Consider this, if a BMW owner has to add a quart of oil once per month, that can mean adding up to 7 to 9 quarts of oil between manufacturer recommended oil changes. Costs due to excessive oil consumption can add up these engines require synthetic oil, which can cost upwards of $12 per quart plus the expense of the routine oil changes.

What you need to know about the BMW N63 Oil Consumption issue

The lawsuit claims that BMW is fully aware of the alleged engine defects because the automaker has issued technical service bulletins and customer satisfaction programs in an attempt to remedy the alleged defects. According to the lawsuit, BMW knows these procedures won’t fix the N63 engine problems and the automaker is offering the services only to buy time until the warranty has expired.

The lawsuit further alleges that BMW addressed the N63 engine oil consumption issues by telling dealers to overfill engine oil in the vehicles. Overfilling the engine oil in your car can cause serious damage to the internal engine parts of your engine.

However, the lawsuit claims no remedy has worked and the N63 engines continue to consume excessive engine oil, prematurely drain batteries and require constant repairs.

The case is captioned Bang v. BMW (case no. 2:15-CV- 6945) and is currently pending in the District of New Jersey.
