Our client purchased a 2009 BMW X5 with a Certified Pre-Owned warranty and a BMW Extended Service Contract, which extended the standard manufacturer warranty to 6 years or 100,000 miles. Within a month after purchase, the Vehicle began exhibiting a burning smell, excessive vibrations, odd noises, and drivability problems. Our Client repeatedly took the Vehicle in for warranty repairs, however, the problems would return. The Dealer attempted repairs on the Vehicle’s multiple systems, including drivetrain, fuel delivery, electronic controls, and braking system. The Vehicle’s engine problems were continuous and, ultimately, the Vehicle’s engine shut-off while driving.
In a bold move, BMW not only denied that our client’s vehicle was a Lemon but denied there was warranty coverage at all.
After a 1 week jury trial, the attorneys at 888Lemon28 obtained a judgment a judgment against BMW of North America in the sum of $155,419.29
