Lawsuit Filed Against BMW

Posted:

A lawsuit has been filed against BMW after it was revealed that the firm expects customers to keep quiet about faulty airbags that are fitted into their vehicles. Lawyers that have filed the lawsuit want it to be a class action, as it could affect thousands of drivers of the BMW X5 sport utility vehicle.

One driver explained that she had hurt her arm after her airbag exploded and when she took the car in she was told that she had to sign a confidentiality agreement or else pay nearly four thousand dollars for repair.

She said: “Finally, I got very upset and I called customer relations, and they said OK, they would go ahead and repair the airbag. But, that I should sign some papers and send them back to them, which ended up being the release and I just didn’t think that was right. Why should I have to sign a release to get you to fix something that you should have fixed to begin with?”

However, she refused to do this and instead filed a lawsuit against BMW. A lawyer stated: “That is a serious problem. We have now filed a lawsuit to prevent BMW from keeping these things secret. We feel that it is unfair and deceptive and we filed a claim on that behalf, and we also want everyone who has paid out monies to have air bag repaired–not covered under warranty– to be reimbursed their monies.”
