BMW 5 Series Water Damage Lawsuit & Settlement Details

According to a number of owners, BMW manufactured cars that were susceptible to water buildup and damage in the trunk due to sunroof drainage tubes becoming clogged. The water would back up into the trunk area and damage electrical systems located in that area of the car. The owner who originally brought the lawsuit forward said his car shut down while driving with his wife on a busy, four-lane road.

The final settlement will cover owners of 2004-2010 model year BMW 5 Series cars that have less than 120,000 miles and are less than 10 years old. Eligible owners can bring in their cars for free checkups and repairs. If repairs have already been done, owners are eligible for up to $1,500 in compensation.

Problems with the BMW X5 Locking System

If you are an owner of a BMW X5 with a model year between 2008-2015, you could be a victim of a faulty locking system that was recently exposed. BMW tried to make 'keyless entry' more convenient by allowing access to the vehicle without having to press any buttons on the keyless remote. While this was designed to make it easier for owners to gain entry into the car with their hands full, defects caused the device to unintentionally lock the keys inside the car, along with whatever or whomever was left in the car.

One of the plaintiffs in the latest BMW class action lawsuit alleged that BMW's faulty lock system locked her young child inside her car. Her only solution was to break a window, which could have led to serious injury to her child or to herself. A defective locking system can easily lock someone out of the vehicle or accidentally lock their children inside, creating an extremely unsafe situation.
