We are pleased to have achieved a settlement which allows class members to recover their repair costs as soon as possible, without having to wait for the conclusion of years of litigation and the uncertainty inherent in any trial.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) August 10, 2016
Class Counsel Stephen M. Harris and Robert L. Starr announce that a settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit filed on behalf of certain MINI Cooper owners or lessees who have faced or will face repairs to their vehicle due to an alleged defective water pump prone to failure.
The settlement reached in Herremans v. BMW of North America, LLC, UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT FOR THE CENTRAL DISTRICT OF CALIFORNIA, Case No. 2:14-cv-02363-GW-PJW, will reimburse current and former owners and lessees of certain MINI Coopers from model years 2006-2012 for money they spent to replace an alleged faulty water pump and related components such as, replacing coolant, gasket and bolts. The settlement relates to MINI owners and lessees of covered vehicles who paid for a water pump replacement on or before November 28th, 2016 and within seven years or 84,000 miles of when the vehicle was first placed into service. MINI owners may be reimbursed up to $500 of their out-of-pocket costs for this repair.
The settlement also covers vehicle owners and lessees who have not yet had a problem but may experience a problem in the future. The owner or lessee of any covered vehicle which experiences an alleged water pump failure after November 28th (or a failure within 7 years or 84,000 miles) may take the vehicle to an authorized MINI dealer and have the problem repaired at no cost to the owner or lessee. This free repair service applies to any covered vehicle which experiences water pump failure within seven years or 84,000 miles since the vehicles was first placed in service.
