BMW Diesel Claim

What is the BMW Diesel Claims SCANDAL?

Who is eligible for a BMW diesel claim? If you bought, financed, or leased a new or used BMW diesel vehicle between 2008 and 2018 you may be entitled to make a claim as it could be fitted with a diesel "defeat device" that may cheat air pollution tests.
Potential impacts on Diesel BMW customers

Thousands of BMW customers have had their vehicles recalled due to the issue with the vehicles diesel emissions. Some customers claim since having the software update, that they have had problems with their car or van. For example, encountering power loss, which then has caused an increase in maintenance costs. Others have mentioned that they have noticed increased fuel consumption and lowered the value of their car.

Some felt that they had paid more than the car was actually worth, and not quite the eco-friendly car that they thought they’d purchased. Others stated that they would never have acquired the car in the first place, had they known about the diesel emissions fault. If you feel that you are one of the hundreds and thousands that have been affected, why not see if our panel of experts can help bring a claim on your behalf.

UK owners can now bring a claim against BMW

About the BMW diesel emissions group action claim.

BMW have potentially misled vehicle owners about the level of toxic fumes emitted from their vehicles. If you own a BMW, you may be entitled to compensation.

Trouble began to brew for BMW in 2017 when German authorities investigated BMW, Daimler and The Volkswagen Group over collusion and setting up secret workshops to coordinate a response to diesel emissions limits. The three massive car manufacturers were charged in 2019 for colluding to limit the introduction of clean emissions technology.

The issues didn’t stop there for BMW, however. In 2018, the BMW HQ was raided in an emissions cheating probe, where BMW admitted to installing emissions software in 11,400, “by mistake”. Prosecutors at the time said they had reasons to believe that these vehicles had been fitted with “inadmissible defeat devices”.

In 2017, Government-funded research found that some BMW engines were emitting toxic fumes, NOx, at up to seven times the legal limit. NOx is a polluting gas that contributes to respiratory diseases, cancer, acid rain and smog.

BMW has consistently denied the use of defeat devices, which are programmed to lessen emissions during laboratory tests meaning real-world emissions are much higher. However, there is reason to believe that their liberal use of “thermal windows” can constitute a defeat device. This is what our emissions solicitors will argue on your behalf.

What does the BMW Emission claim relate to?

The BMW claim itself is likely to follow a similar path as the current Volkswagen Group claim. With the information currently available, we believe your claim could focus on:
  1. A breach of contract by the dealership
  2. A breach of contract by the manufacturer financier
  3. Breach of the Consumer Protection from Unfair Trading Regulations 2008
  4. A claim in deceit against BMW

The 'DieselGate' Scandal
Dieselgate started in the US back in 2015, when car manufacturer Volkswagen were found to have manipulated their results to get around the emission law designed to help keep the air clean.
The US Environmental Protection Agency stated that some VW cars had been fitted with so-called “Defeat Devices”. These particular gadgets had sophisticated coding software which could detect when the car was being tested for the NOx emissions.
NOx emissions known as Nitrogen Oxides are gases which are emitted by vehicles such as cars and vans, and may be harmful to the environment and humans.
The device then made the car meet the emission standards. When the car was not being tested and on the road, the device would turn off and the vehicle would discharge more pollution into the atmosphere which may be around 40 times higher than the legal limit.
Millions of vehicles worldwide have been affected, meaning that some consumers have purchased or leased diesel cars and vans that had higher emissions than actually advertised.
