X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

N63 BANG VS BMW class action lawsuit Settlement

N63 Owners,


Did any of you get the BANG VS BMW class action lawsuit Settlement letter??

I got the letter about two weeks ago and I contacted the dealership near me and they said they weren't familiar with it and it will take some time for them to look into it...

Yes rec’d. Read the part where it says nothing can be done until the Judge declares the settlement “effective” which I believe has not happened yet.

I agree class action settlements generally only make lawyers happy but in this case I think it’s pretty fair, at least as far as excess consumption goes.

After the effective date any dealership will give you no charge oil consumption test. If you fail (which I presume means consuming more than 1 quart per 750 miles) they will replace your engine. Owner shares in the cost based on a sliding scale depending upon mileage on your existing engine. That’s not a terrible result if consumption is your problem.

so what I should do now is fill out the paperwork from BANG VS BMW class action lawsuit Settlement and send it back to them?

On the letter its says 60,000 miles to 70,000 miles you pay 15% of the total replacement and 70,000 to 80,000 miles you pay 30%

so my question is my car is at 68k miles now...should I just not drive it past 70k miles so I dont have to pay the additional 15%? I have another car that I can drive but just don't know when we will be getting the engine replacement....

Read it carefully. I believe you need to fail two oil consumption tests before they will replace the engine. The tests might put you over and I’ll bet they will base it on mileage at the time of replacement

Just spoke to the dealer. I think they are aware of this settlement. They will count the current mileage when you drop off the vehicle.

I did a oil consumption testing last year and I already failed it once. I should fail if I test it again.

Dropped off my X6 at the dealer for the n63 settlement couple days ago. The dealer just called and told me I will be getting a new engine but I will have to wait until Feb. to get it.

So your X6 smoking during idle?
Wonder also if how much oil need to be added in your case per 1000-miles

Hope not a ton out-of-pocket to get that new engine, GL

Yes smoking at idle. I'm paying 15% out of pocket. The engine is ordered and already registered the mileage when I dropped off the vehicle. Now I can keep driving it without worrying about paying extra out of pocket cost.

I'm curious; Has BMW corrected whatever flaw is causing the excessive oil consumption, or will you be facing this crap again in the near future?

BMW fixed the valve guide issue on it's V8 TT with the release of N63xx (forgot the suffices) from 2014 and on.

BMW never make reliable V8 since Nikasil, M62, N62 and on
Oh well, V8 will pass into history anyway, soon they'll be I-6 TT and electric motor hybrid for M5, M6, X5, X6, X7 etc anyway. CAFE regulation will make it obsolete unless pres. Trump goes for another term

09 X6 50i timing chain failed before I could get oil consumption tests done. Car has 72,000 miles on it. Had customer care package done at mid 50,000 miles and bmw said timing chain passed with flying colors. Now at 72,000 my timing chain is bad. They said I need a new engine and they will only pay 30% because it is not a oil consumption problem. They want $11,500 for a new engine with the 30% discount. I have been without a car since September and they will only pay 30%. If they would have fixed the timing chain right the first time I would not have a blown engine.

Mein Auto: X6
Hi everyone! New to the forum. I have an 2009 X6 with 60k miles and had all the same issues everyone else was having. Burn a quart of oil once a week and white smoking coming out the pipes when idling. Took the car in as soon as the lawsuit was approved in October. They tested it ONLY once and said I would be getting a new engine. Was told the engines were on backorder till January. Called them end of December to just get an update and they said the lawsuit has changed and I needed to bring my car back in again to get tested. Now BMW will only cover things related to OIL CONSUMPTION. Nothing else. So instead of getting a new engine (which they now say is still backorder for 90days) I got all new valves instead. Didn't even get a choice. They said "BMW will fix your engine to what ever is cheapest for them to do so to fix the oil consumption problem." Hence, no new engine. But it was ALL FREE and I got a loaner for 2 weeks. They told me my turbos were ok, but the turbo lines needed to be changed. Would cost about 3k but they offered me 10% off. Can't afford to do that. F'n BS. Love the car. Hate the problems. I just put it up for sale. Hope everyone else is having better luck!!!

I spun a rod bering in June at 74K and had been complaining about the oil consumption since 50K. The replaced the engine for free partly because I was in the process of purchasing a 2019 430 for my wife. Long block and I have 1K on it, runs like dream. They did tell me that BMW is just fixing engines now, that sucks if have this issue.

Hello everyone hope you all are doing ok. Well I took my 2012 x6 to the dealer and was told about this class action lawsuit about engine burning oil and smoking. They called it in to bmw and they approved to fix all the oil seals. They started the work about a week ago and came across something that they called bmw with there finding and guess what? GUESS I SAY. they are replacing my engine with a new one ***x1f44f;***x1f44f;***x1f44f;***x1f44f;. Your car has to be under 120,000 miles to get approved. Hope I made someone day. Good luck.
