I have the same problem with my X3. I took it to the dealer twice and it is still coming back, usually right after the fill up then stays for a day or two then goes away. How is your lemon process is going? Any luck yet?i was hoping that was the case, everytime i take it back they just reset the sensor or they replace the cap. Lemon Law is the same problem 4 times this is my 5th, so i took the litigous route, i might as well get some money for my pain.
Yes, but the Lemon Law is to replace the car, not get some certain amount of compensation. There is virtually no way BMW is going to let a car with a gas cap issue ever get to Lemon status.Lemon Law Rules in California- FYI
