This recall is something that all drivers should know about. Under the Song-Beverly Act, car manufacturers are required to repair vehicles while they are under warranty. The law also forces manufacturers to repurchase or “buy back” (in a few instances replace the defective car) cars that the company is unable or unwilling to fix after a reasonable number of repair attempts.
If you have leased or own one of the vehicles listed above or another BMW that has had a number of repair attempts by the dealer but the problem still exists, you need a Pasadena Lemon Lawyer to help you. Don’t let the manufacturer take advantage of you and allow you to continue to drive the defective and unsafe vehicle you are driving.
