On March 27, 2017 Siskinds filed a proposed class action against BMW and Bosch regarding certain BMW vehicles equipped with Advanced Diesel with BluePerformance engine technology.
The proposed action alleges that BMW equipped affected vehicles with software that allows them to defeat emissions testing. Bosch is alleged to have developed this software and supplied it to BMW. The action alleges that under common driving conditions, the vehicles emit levels of pollutants that are far higher than advertised and allowed by law.
The action seeks to advance claims on behalf of all individuals or businesses in Canada who purchased or leased a 2009-2013 BMW X5 or BMW 335d 2009-2011 vehicle equipped with Advanced Diesel with BluePerformance engine technology.
