Just found out today that our local BMW dealership is going to replace all eight battery cells. Not seen much chatter about them stepping up to the plate and replacing them under warranty, in other prior posts and my research I have found that BMW has done everything to try and avoid this expense. To our surprise, we became one of the lucky few. It was unexpected as we had our air conditioning compressor fail last week (our course we are out of our factory warranty) the new compressor cost us almost $3,000 to replace. Unfortunately, we had to bring it back to the dealership the next day because the A/C had cut out again. They performed a battery capacity procedure (takes 24 hours) and when the result came back, they texted me this, "Based on the results of the capacity test I went forward with a request to the BMW electric mobility team for a High Voltage Battery overhaul They have agreed with my assessment and approved my recommendations. All 8 cell modules will be replaced inside the HV battery pack under the battery warranty coverage. I am currently in the process of getting all the needed parts for the repair ordered. Once I know the availability I can provide a better time frame of when the repair may be completed." There is hope for all 2014 owners. And yes BMW does indeed honor that 8/100,000 battery replacement program.
