NHTSA STATEMENT

Please be reminded that it is a violation of federal law (The Safety Act) for you to sell, lease or deliver any new motorcycle covered by this notification until the recall repair has been performed. This means that dealers may not legally deliver new motorcycles to consumers until they are fixed or use/sell replacement equipment/parts subject to this recall.

 

Note also that:

Substantial civil penalties apply to violations of the Safety Act

You should not sell, lease or deliver any Certified Pre-Owned or used motorcycles subject to a safety recall until the repair is completed.

TREAD ACT CUSTOMER REIMBURSEMENT PLAN

(BMW of North America, LLC)

If you have paid for the repair described in the attached letter, and you would like your expenses to be considered for reimbursement, please contact your authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer. Expenses paid to repair facilities outside of the BMW Motorcycle dealer network will be considered; however, the repair procedure must meet BMW standards.

 

Your authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer will request a copy of your owner notification letter, as well as, your previously paid invoice. They will then inspect your motorcycle (if it is still in your possession) prior to submitting a claim on your behalf to BMW of North America, LLC for reimbursement. Please note the following:

  • Only a repair that is the subject of this safety recall is reimbursable. Consequential expenses such as towing, rental, accommodations, damage repairs, etc. will not be reimbursed.
  • The Manufacturer’s Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) for BMW Genuine Parts will be considered as the guideline for reasonable part charges.
  • Repair labor, taxes and hazardous waste disposal, when previously paid, are eligible for reimbursement.
  • Expenses for repairs performed more than 10 days after the date of the last owner notification sent by BMW are not eligible for reimbursement.

Your authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer should be able to answer any questions that you may have regarding your qualifications for reimbursement of a previous repair. If you qualify for such a reimbursement, your BMW Motorcycle dealer will also be able to advise you of the manner in which you can expect to receive reimbursement.

 

Your authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer should be your primary contact on this issue; however, our Customer Relations and Services Department may be contacted at 1-800-525-7417 for any special assistance that you may require.

In special situations where your authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer cannot be of assistance, you may submit your written request for reimbursement to:

Customer Relations and Services Department
BMW of North America, LLC
P.O. Box 1227
Westwood, NJ 07675-1227

 

If you intend to submit a request for reimbursement to our Customer Relations and Services department, your motorcycle (if it is still in your possession and was repaired at a facility outside of the BMW Motorcycle dealer network) will need to be inspected at an authorized BMW Motorcycle dealer before a claim can be accepted for consideration. This is to ensure that prior repairs at an outside facility meet BMW standards for recall completion.
