While BMW offers many features, there are also some problems that are common with the brand. Common Issues and Defects with BMW vehicles include the following:


BMW oil leaks from the engine area are a common problem that our BMW lemon law attorneys at Quill & Arrow Law have seen. If all oil is lost, damage to the BMW engine can be extensive and a new engine may even be needed. A common cause of BMW oil leaks are the valve cover gaskets. In many instances, defects with the oil pan may cause a BMW oil leak and will require removal of the front suspension in order to be replaced.

Excessive Oil Consumption

A common sentiment between automakers is adding oil between scheduled is acceptable and part of the normal operation of the car. Our BMW lemon law attorneys will fight and prove otherwise. We understand that no consumer should have to carry an extra quart of oil in the trunk of their car.  Simply put, cars under warranty shouldn’t burn oil. In some cases, when confronted by a customer complaint, a manufacturer may have to repair, rebuild, or replace the engine under warranty in order to fix these issues. However, most manufacturers defend the oil consumption as falling within the car’s technical specifications or they blame the car’s owner for his or her driving habits. Our BMW lemon law attorneys have researched and battled manufacturers, such as BMW, to prove that the consumers oil consumption in not part of the regular operation of the car.

Electrical Issues/Failures

Failure of electrical components is a common issue with BMW. Our BMW lemon law attorneys have been consulted regarding issues relating to failure of the Bluetooth operation, dashboard display or console, erratic lights and failed headlight. Such concerns are usually intermittent by nature and are difficult to diagnose. Like many other European cars, BMW offers sophisticated technology that unfortunately sometimes has software and wiring issues that develop. Common issues include:

  • Defective backup camera
  • Defective parking sensors
  • Defective lane assist
  • Defective screen/head unit
  • Defective key fob
  • Battery issues
  • Defective iDrive
  • Defective Apple play
  • Defective Bluetooth

Engine Issues

One of the most common problems BMW owners experience is the check engine light and engine overheating message. Our BMW lemon law attorneys are familiar with the different trouble codes present in BMW vehicles and fully understand the intricacies of engines/turbos. Our BMW lemon law attorneys have found that these issues can arise from oil leaks, faulty sensors, evap system, ignition modules, injectors, fuel pumps, and engine misfires.

Steering Wheel Vibration

The steering wheel in many BMWs exhibit a rough and dangerous vibration when braking. If you observe this with your car, your rotors, alignment, or brakes may be defective.

Air Conditioning Issues

A common cause is the malfunctioning of the ambient temperature sensor.

Coolant Leaks

Coolant leaks present themselves in the form of an error message or may present itself as a white smoke coming from the exhaust or visible coolant leak outside the vehicle.

Power Steering Leaks

This often presents itself as a screeching noise while steering.

In California, a vehicle must be presented for repair under the manufacturer’s warranty to qualify for a lemon. An overview of the BMW New Vehicle Warranty is as follows:
