Oil Use or Consumption

BMW 7 Series Car

BMW of North America, LLC and Bayerische Motoren  Werke AG is settling a class action suit by offering a variety of benefits to owners of certain of their vehicles. The complaint alleged that certain model year 2009 to 2014 BMW 5 series, 6 series, 7 series, X5, and X6 vehicles that are equipped with an N63 engine consumer excessive amounts of oil.

2017 Chevrolet Equinox

If your car engine is consuming oil faster than it should, how would you know when more oil is needed? Perhaps you would rely on the vehicle’s oil pressure warning (OPW) or oil life monitoring (OLM) system. But if you had a Chevrolet Equinox from certain model years, the complaint for this class action alleges, your engine could suffer damage or even shut down on the road before either of these systems gave you a warning. The complaint alleges breaches of warranties, among other violations.
