BMW Lease Recall Preventing Assumption

doonesdoones Posts: 1
edited February 5 in BMW
I am currently leasing a BMW X1 and need to get out of my lease as I unexpectedly need to move across the country and cannot take my car with me. I have someone willing to take over my lease and called BMW to start the Assumption process. They let me know that there is currently a recall on my car so I am unable to proceed with a lease transfer. They currently do not have a fix for the recall and do not have an ETA on a fix for the recall so I am unable to transfer my lease. Has anyone experienced this or know how to proceed? I cannot keep my car and BMW is preventing me from transferring my lease due to not being able to fix their recall.

    out of curiosity, why can't you take it with you?

    Been there.

    Unfortunately there is nothing you can do. BMW will not allow the sale or transfer of a vehicle under recall until the recall fix has been completed.

    Your only option is to ground the lease early and pay whatever they assess you. Typically remainder of payments plus disposition OR the delta between the residual + remaining payments and what they sell it at auction for - which ever amount is less.

    Don't lemon laws apply the same on leases as purchases? 30 days in the shop or undriveable, and it's lemoned in CA I think.

    Lemon law varies in each state. Most places it is only 1 year long. And even still, a recall does not rise to the level of a lemon law event.

    This is a BMWFS/BMWNA policy - my lease ended and I was not going to fight about it.
