BMW Faces Defective Alloy Wheels Class Action Lawsuit
May 15 2013
San Francisco, CA: A defective products class action lawsuit has been filed against BMW North America LLC alleging the alloy wheels used in 2007-2012 BMW Z4 sports cars are prone to cracking, making them a safety hazard. Additionally, they are expensive to repair.
Filed by Barry Jekowsky, the lawsuit, entitled Jekowsky v. BMW of North America LLC, Case No. 13-cv-02158, US District Court for the Northern District of California, states that BMW “knowingly and purposefully failed to disclose to consumers that the BMW alloy wheels had an unreasonably short lifespan and would require far more frequent replacement than reasonable consumers would expect.” Further, the complaint alleges that despite BMW knowing of the defective alloy wheels, the company continued to install them on the vehicles and failed to include them in its four-year/50,000 mile warranty.
Jekowski claims his vehicle’s alloy wheels suffered two cracks within the initial year of leasing a new 2011 BMW Z4. On both occasions the wheel and tire damage was not covered by the warranty, resulting in his paying approximately $2,000 out of pocket to repair the defective products. He further claims that had he known about the problem with the alloy wheels in advance of leasing the BMW Z4 sports car, he would purchased the vehicle with different wheels, or not paid the price he had for the existing product.
The lawsuit is filed on behalf of all current and former owners and lessees of a 2007-2012 BMW Z4 vehicle that either came equipped with alloy wheels or who had them installed after purchase. Plaintiffs are represented by Mark Andrew Chavez of Chavez & Gertler LLP.
