RADNOR, Pa., Jan. 3, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- The law firm of Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLP announces that it has filed a class action lawsuit against BMW of North America, LLC and Bayerische Motoren Werke Aktiengesellschaft (collectively "BMW") in the District of New Jersey on behalf of all persons in the United States who purchased, own, owned, lease or leased the following BMW or MINI vehicles containing a sunroof or moonroof: MY 2005-2013 BMW 3 series; MY 2004-2018 BMW X5s; MY 2005-2018 X3s; MY 2009-2018 BMW X1s; MY 2008-2018 MINI Clubmans; MY 2006-2008 MINI Coopers; MY 2011-2018 MINI Countrymans; MY 2009-2018 MINI Hardtops; and MY 2013-2016 MINI Pacemans.
Owners or Lessees of BMW or MINI vehicles with a sunroof or moonroof who wish to discuss their legal rights or interests are encouraged to contact Kessler Topaz Meltzer & Check, LLC (James Maro, Esq. or Adrienne Bell, Esq.) at (888) 299-7706 or (610) 667-7706, or via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org.

BMW and MINI began installing panoramic sunroofs/moonroofs in certain vehicles in or around 2004, generally marketing the panoramic sunroofs/moonroofs as a luxury upgrade. However, the vehicles equipped with the sunroofs/moonroofs expose drivers and passengers to a risk of sudden explosion or shattering. In addition to the defect in panoramic sunroofs, non-panoramic sunroofs/moonroofs installed in BMW 3 series vehicles are also prone to shattering.
The complaint alleges that the defective sunroofs/moonroofs are defective in design, manufacturing, materials and/or workmanship. The complaint also alleges that BMW has wrongfully refused to cover replacement of the defective sunroofs/moonroofs, which typically cost thousands of dollars, under the applicable warranties. Further, despite BMW's knowledge of the defect in the sunroofs/moonroofs, BMW never disclosed to owners or lessees that the defect exists or that drivers and occupants of the vehicles are at risk.
BMW owner/lessees have lodged numerous complaints with the federal government about exploding sunroofs in their vehicles.
