Owners of BMW S65 engine have had multiple complaints. Owners may be entitled to compensation for repair costs, inconvenience, and other damages. A class action states, while driving the bearings not having enough lubrication. In addition, steering can display problems l because the hydraulic power steering is driven directly by the rotating assembly.
The lawsuit alleges M3 owners complain about noises and knocking coming from the engines, symptoms that BMW dealers said were normal. They state that when the connecting rod bearings and main bearings start to fail, metal debris from the bearings is circulated in the oil throughout the engine. The class-action lawsuit includes former and current owners and lessees of 2008-2013 BMW M3 cars with S65 engines.
Initially the judge ruled that complaints posted online about the engine problems don’t necessarily mean that BMW knew about the alleged problems. But taking those complaints into considering with other evidence presented by the plaintiffs is enough to indicate BMW should have known about rotating assembly problems when the plaintiffs bought their vehicles.
