6yr/100K miles is quite generous. With most other luxury car makes, if your engine survives 4yrs/50K miles then you're on your own.
Or maybe they could extend the warranty to 12yr/200K miles to satisfy some but there'll still be people that want to file a class-action suit for their 12 year old garage queens with 24K miles.
If someone is that worried about their car, they should buy an extended powertrain warranty.
: Anybody have any thoughts on what BMW is going to do when a bunch of Nikasil engines start coming out of warranty and failing? I would think that is about to begin to occur (six years is up). Does anyone think BMW might just replace the blocks to avoid some kind of a class-action suit?
