My 2013 750li needs engine replaced at 6,000 miles

Apparently I'm not the only one. Something to do with the oil system in certain VIN numbers. They have to replace the entire engine on my lease I've has for 4 months. Anyone else heard of this?

Sorry to hear that. Tell them you want the s63tu or your money back.

I just called BMW today. I don't want the car anymore, I want a new one for the same money. I love the car...although the new body style looks too much like a 5 series in my opinion. I don't want a 3 month old car with a brand new engine, CA Lemon Law should cover that on nearly $100k car.

that lease you signed is pretty clear, they fix, you drive.. over... and it cant be 3 months old and youve had it four months as stated in the op. you basically have no recourse https://oag.ca.gov/consumers/general/lemon At least they are fixing it, and youll still have a sweet ass car with a brand spakin new engine.

Champagne problems I guess I'll wait and hear back from them to see what they say. I figured getting a new car might be a long shot but I do feel I shouldn't have been sold the car when BMW was aware of the problem with a certain range of VIN numbers. Either way, I want to be back in a 750 soon.

it probably went down in the reverse order, i doubt they sold you a bad car knowingly. sounds more like they found out a certain production run has issues and are fixing it.... warranties.. awesomeness.. did the give you a loaner

I don't think the dealer sold me a bad car knowingly. I like to give companies the benefit of the doubt that they don't try to screw customers. However, if they knew that certain vin numbers had these problems they should have put the information out to the dealers. I could understand if I got it at the beginning of the year, but I bought literally the last 2013 on the lot and got a smoking deal on it. Like I said, its a pretty good problem to have I guess in the grand scheme of things when you think about it. Yes, they put me in a 5 series loaner for now and they are looking for something bigger.

Please elaborate on the specifics regarding the VIN #. What VIN #'s are alledged to be defective?

What did I miss? Did your current engine break down or are they being proactive and replacing your engine due to an alert from BMW?? I looked at your previous posts and dont see where you say you had a problem. If they are being proactive then thats one hell of a recall!

Ah ****. I've had my 2013 lease for just about as long as you. If they think I'm going to drive around in a 328 or an X1 for a month while they swap my engine they can either suck a D ore refund one of my lease payments. Already been seeing some hesitation during idle at <3k miles.

Unbelievable that BMW can't produce a proper, reliable V8 engine.

Wrong, CA has the strongest lemon laws in the country. Many different items can make it a lemon. I think the one that you will be golden on is if BMW has your car for more than 4 weeks straight, it can be lemoned. Call this guy, has helped me and 2 of my friends get out out an M6 and a 3 series. Neither of them 100% qualified for the lemon law, but he got it done anyways. I would call now, it's free, you probably won't even have to wait the 4 weeks. http://www.lemonlaw4california.com/
Good luck.

There is no way a local BMW dealership can do an engine swap and make it work right in a month.

You are totally wrong. I dont know where you have had an engine put in that took a month but they played you. Probably because you don't know what your talking about and angered some employee. The op has no history of problems with the car, there is no basis for the car being a lemon. Repeated attempts at repair with no result constitutes a lemon, not bmw proactively remedying an issue that may come up but which has not shown itself as of yet. According to the posts.

Dang. Little harsh there.

Just get a lemon attorney. CA is the strongest in the nation. If it is out for 30d you should qualify. I don't see another reason you would qualify at this point.

this implies that bmw knew about this problem before you bought the car, i see no info of the sort, your infering they knew, do you know when they found out about this problem, are you assuming this is witheld info because they know the vins of the cars with problems???? they built them, thus they would be able to go back "retroactivly" and see "jim bob" was the guy on second shift in the oil system assembly station, all his cars are bad, and recall any cars he touched, they would know this by the vin of the car. hence the contacted you based on your vin, probably as soon as the could track down the issue, and find out what batch of cars was affected. btw FIRE JIM BOB. i feel for ou, its a sweet car, i love bmw, sometimes you just have to play along. i would never resort to litigation over a non problem, just clutters the judicial system.

Didn't have an engine put in, just a engine seal that leaked a dime sized oil spot on my garage floor at 2500 miles. Took the dealership 7 weeks to get my car back to me. I could have lemoned the car, but I decided to keep it. Oh, I forgot to mention, because I did not lemon the car, the dealership gave me a check for 10k when I got the car back for "BMW goodwill". So I'm not sure if I got played when they kept my car for 7 weeks or if I got played when they gave me 10k. You can decide that one.
Also, why so angry?

True that, be prepared for 2 months at the very best.

It took almost that long for the largest BMW dealership in northern germany to replace an engine.

Your op says you did lemon the car. So what is it, you, your two buddies used that lawyer and lemoned the car. Or, now you got a goodwill check for ten grand because you didn't lemon it. I Googled bmw goodwill check/payment/reimbursement. The only thing that comes up is bmw goodwill repair. I think your full of it. And all I've heard are stories, seven weeks for a gasket. Lil far fetched.

I kind of like when my car has problems just so I can complain-brag with lines such as, "$100 thousand dollars for this piece of crap?! it breaks down more often than my damn lambo and mclaren combined!"

Wait, BMW doesn't advertise that they will give you cash if you don't lemon law one of their cars? That's weird, you would think they would want everyone to know that. You are correct, in fact the only thing you have been correct about, that my op is a little vague. When I said the lemon law attorney helped me, I meant with advice, as I'm not a lawyer. My 2 friends lemoned their cars. I have a 7, there is a picture right there ^ , I do not have a M6 or a 3 series. I actually am full from last month, I'm still stuffed. I don't normally go on sites and make up stories, but I decided to make an exception here.
astockglausner if you don't want the car, call the lemon law attorney, he will take care of you. Please report back, love to here good news.
