BMW was denied a demand for arbitration of a lemon law case filed by a consumer in California by a U.S. Appeals Court. The 9th District U.S. Court of Appeals ruled this week that BMW can not force the consumer to arbitrate her claim that BMW violated federal warranty, California and U.S. consumer protection acts.
This lemon law case will now go back to the court where the original claim was filed in July of 2020, the U.S. District Court in Los Angeles. At that time BMW North America allegedly refused to repurchase or replace the car after seven trips to the repair shop the occurred between 2015 and 2019. She alleged that BMW had breached its four-year, 50,000-mile warranty and violated the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act and the provisions of the California Song-Beverly which states a manufacturer must”repair, replace or repurchase” a defective vehicle.
