BMW Transfer Case Investigation

The Heber Law Firm LLC is investigating a potential class action lawsuit involving a reported problem with transfer cases in certain 2019 and 2020 BMW models.  A transfer case moves power from the transmission of a vehicle to the axles in all-wheel-drive vehicles.  Problems with transfer cases in certain all-wheel drive BMW models may be caused by a factory error. However, consumers may have to pay out of pocket for testing to determine if their car has a problem with the transfer case, and they may have to pay to replace transfer cases if their cars are out of warranty. 

Consumers report that symptoms of transfer cases problems may include shuddering or jerking when driving at low speeds, especially when accelerating or turning. Consumers also report that the cost to replace transfer cases can exceed $6,000.

A transfer case problem may affect the 2019 and 2020 models of the following vehicles:

  • M5 Sedan
  • M8 Convertible and Coupe
  • X3, X4, X5, X6, X7
  • X3 M, X4 M, X5 M, X6 M  
  • 3 Series Sedan
  • 5 Series Sedan
  • 7 Series Sedan
  • 8 Series Convertible, Coupe, and Gran Coupe
  • 640i xDrive Gran Turismo
