My 3.5 year old 225xe has 34k miles on the clock. The engine warning light came on during a long journey and it felt like the engine was running on 3 cylinders. The fault seemed to clear itself and the warning light went off again. I took it to my local BMW dealer and it turned out to be a problem with the VANOS which had caused a stuck valve which in turn damaged the high voltage wiring and some other components. The final bill was around £3200. BMW UK agreed to pay some of it as a goodwill gesture and my Autocare extended warranty covered some of the rest (annoyingly, it doesn't cover stuck valves!) and I was left with £500 to pay so I reckon I got off lightly. The car was off the road for 2 weeks getting fixed. This has given me a bit of a fright as it appears that the complicated nature of PHEVs means that if anything goes wrong it's more likely to be complicated and expensive. So I think now is the time to make the jump to a full EV, probably an ID3. I just wondered if anyone else had experienced this sort of problem with their 225xe?
