N63 oil consumption ( class action lawsuit)

Hi everyone,

First let me say I didnít check the forum for this topic so if itís on already just disregard.

2014 E71 5.0i
45k Milage
Iím the second owner
Iíve had it for 1 year now and got it with 37k mileage

My last oil change at bmw was September 2018. Since then Iíve put in 3 quarts of oil. I called my service advisor and he said this was normal. By the time I put the 3 quart in I knew this wasnít normal. I went to my regular mechanic and he said take it Bmw and tell them Iím putting a quart in every week. 🤔
I have an after market powertrain warranty that covers all engine issues so I said worst thing that could happen is that Bmw will bill my warranty provider.
I took the car in last week but to a different Bmw service center. The advisor I had was really nice ( not revelavant but whatever).

After Bmw having the X6 for 2 days I called my advisor to check in and she said they were running an oil consumption test to see if the issue could be covered under the ďclass action lawsuitĒ. I said what suit and she explained there was an issue and itís easier to google it. If approved theyíd cover it all.

The next day she called me to tell me it was covered and the valve stems were being replaced along with a few other things. She told me that itís a major job and takes 3 weeks between parts ordering and labor. Additionally if a connecting part not listed in the included repairs looked worn they would replace it. That part Iíd have to pay for. Needless to say Iím very happy. Waiting patiently to get my car back. Iíll update you all once I get it back.

Can you share your results? Did they charge you for the oil change to do the consumption test?

Hey guys, just joined tonight to post my experience with the N63 engine replacement and Bang Settlement.

Have a 2013 E71 50 with 65K miles. Purchased as CPO in January 2017. The CPO warranty expired, you guessed it, April 2019.

What's unique to my story is the car never had oil consumption issues or smoke issues, as so many do with the N63. A week ago, under hard take-off acceleration, the car hesitated slightly. Other than that one instance, the car's performed perfectly.

Fast forward to two days ago, driving down the freeway, car goes into limp mode. Pull over, power down and restart the car. Get back on the road, everything's fine for a few minutes and then transmission/engine warning lights illuminate the dash and it drives with sluggish gear shifts and extremely loud knocking and pinging. I then pull over and have it towed to the dealership. Good times!

Dealership calls and says the engine is toast. They then reach out to their BMW NA rep and I wait for a day (I believe I'm the first one to have the N63 failure at their dealership). Today the dealership calls and states BMW NA replied and they've been instructed to follow the Bang settlement replacement percentages. For my mileage (65K) BMW will cover 85% of the engine replacement costs. Total costs will be around $13K, my portion will be around $2K for a new engine. My SA said plan for one month, but, he didn't confirm availability of the new engine yet. They're putting me in an Enterprise rental car tomorrow, no loaner. At least for my experience, the car showed no oil consumption problems, no smoke problems, virtually nothing until the engine just suddenly died.

I'll keep you guys posted, and best of luck to each of you out there with the N63.

Then I definitely got lucky. Engine came in last week, so I only waited a total of 6 weeks and it should be ready next week.

Unfortunately I'm parting ways with her and plan to sell. So someone's going to get a really nice X6 with a brand spanking new engine!

The dealer installed my engine 2 weeks ago. The car is running pretty amazing.

Hopefully you will be able to sell for a little more because of the new engine you put in!
