BMW Fuel Pump Failure – Class Action Investigation

Goldman Scarlato & Penny is currently investigating a potential class action lawsuit for premature fuel pump failure in certain BMW diesel vehicles. BMW diesel owners have reported engine stalling while driving caused by a failure of the high-pressure fuel pump. Certain BMW models may contain a defective high-pressure fuel pump. The alleged defect can lead to safety issues and costly repairs. Unfortunately, BMW often declines to repair and/or replace the defective fuel pumps under warranty. As a result, current and former owners and lessees may be forced to pay for such repairs out-of-pocket.

GSP serves as counsel in a class action lawsuit brought by owners or lessees of 2008 – 2013 model year BMW M3 vehicles. The case was brought on behalf of California residents and alleges that the S65 motors installed in the M3 contain defective rotating assemblies leading to rod and main bearing failure, and eventually, catastrophic engine failure. The lawsuit seeks damages and other relief for the owners and lessees.

On July 28, 2017, United States District Court Judge Madeline Cox Arleo denied BMW, NA’s motion to dismiss plaintiffs’ fraud claims and claims under the California consumer protection laws. The Court’s decision means that the case can now proceed to the discovery stage where Plaintiffs will have an opportunity to review BMW’s evidence related to the alleged defect.

If you have any questions about the lawsuit, please contact Paul Scarlato at for more information.

Goldman Scarlato & Penny, along with co-counsel, filed a class-action lawsuit in New Jersey federal court on behalf of owners of BMW E9x M3s (MY 2008—2013) containing the S65 motor (the “Class Vehicles”). The lawsuit claims that the BMW S65 motor suffers from a defective rotating assembly that results in excessive bearing wear which can (and often does) lead to catastrophic engine failure. The lawsuit is seeking to recover the cost of repairs and other out-of-pocket expenses incurred by owners of the Class Vehicles.

On January 15, 2016, BMW asked the court to dismiss plaintiff’s lawsuit. One of the arguments BMW made is that the case is too broad and shouldn’t cover anyone outside of California, because that’s where the named plaintiff resides. According to BMW’s argument, because there are no plaintiffs from New Jersey, New Jersey law should not apply, and therefore any M3 owners in New Jersey or states other than California should not be part of the class action.

If you are an owner of an E9x M3, and have experienced a problem with your bearings, we are very interested in speaking to you.
