This is an investigation and a potential class action lawsuit against BMW for possibly inflating the number of miles actually driven by allowing inaccurate speedometer calibration.
Consumers have complained that the BMW speedometers may be calibrated to show the vehicle is traveling faster than the true speed of the vehicle. This can be harmful to consumers since an odometer that piles up mileage faster than it should will ultimately push the vehicle out of warranty quicker than an odometer that is calibrated correctly. The consumer may then be forced to incur repairs that should have been covered under warranty, additional costs for mileage upon the return of a lease vehicle, and additional but unneeded maintenance costs.
This may affect the following models: BMW Series 1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, L, M, X, and Z.
