PHILADELPHIA — Consumers are suing BMW of North America LLC and Bavarian Motor Works, automobile dealers, citing alleged breach of warranty.
Stephen Hurley and others filed a complaint on Dec. 10 in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania against the defendants alleging they violated the Pennsylvania Unfair Trade Practices and Consumer Protection Law.
According to the complaint, during the warranty periods, plaintiffs' vehicles consumed an excessive amount of engine oil. The plaintiff holds BMW of North America LLC and Bavarian Motor Works responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to fix the defects by failing to address the cause of excessive oil consumption and continued to misrepresent that the rate of oil consumption was normal.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks revocation of acceptance of their vehicles and the full refund of the contract prices, and award for all damages, attorney's fees and such other just and proper relief. They are represented by Jody Burton of Lemberg Law LLC in Wilton, Connecticut.
The U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Pennsylvania Case No. is 2:18-cv-05320-JD.
