Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP Announces Filing of Class Action Lawsuit Related to Certain BMW and MINI  Vehicles with Defective Sunroofs and Moonroofs

Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP (“KTMC”) announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit against BMW of North America, LLC and Bayerische Motoren Werke Aktiengesellschaft (collectively “BMW”) on behalf of all persons in the United States who purchased, own, owned, lease or leased certain BMW or MINI vehicles containing a sunroof or moonroof.

The complaint alleges that the sunroofs and moonroofs are defective in design, manufacturing, materials and/or workmanship. Further, the complaint alleges that despite BMW’s knowledge of the defect in the sunroofs, BMW never disclosed to owners or lessees that the defect exists or that drivers and occupants of the vehicles are at risk and that vehicles equipped with the sunroofs/moonroofs expose drivers and passengers to a risk of sudden explosion or shattering.

BMW and owner/lessees have lodged hundreds of complaints with the federal government about exploding sunroofs in their vehicles.

The following vehicles are affected:

Vehicle Years
BMW 3 Series 2005-2013
BMW X1 2009-2018
BMW X3 2005-2018
BMW X5 2004-2018

MINI Clubman 2008-2018
MINI Countryman 2011-2018
MINI Hardtop 2009-2018
