SETTLEMENT UPDATE: BMW To Possibly Pay Back Customers And Offer Perks To Car Owners And Lessees Plagued By Their Vehicles’ Excessive Oil Usage
BMW car owners and lessees may be entitled to receive a settlement check from the car company soon as a New Jersey court analyzes the excessive oil burning claims filed by complainants.
BMW Complainants Thomas Isley And Party Push For The Oil Consumption Settlement Agreement Approval
Per online reports, the BMW Oil Consumption Class Action’s plaintiffs Thomas Isley, Michael Henry, Jr., Vipul Khanna, Daniel Gulick, and Walington Urena are asking the judge in a court in New Jersey to allow the settlement proceedings between them and BMW to push through.
The group contended that BMW’s cars have failed standard oil consumption tests mandated by the authorities. Additionally, they argued that some BMW cars contained a defect that made them literal oil drinkers – consuming larger amounts of oil compared to other cars offered by other companies.
As of press time, no decisions or announcements have been made or released from the court. However, if it gets approved, the BMW Oil Consumption Settlement may possibly benefit more than 70,000 qualified BMW car lessee holders and owners.
Rebates of up to $900 and thousands of dollars worth of credits are expected to be given away to those who are covered by the settlement agreement’s terms and conditions.
