    Just a thought, but if it is running on 5 that means that unburnt fuel will be going into the exhaust. That destroys catalytic convertors doesn't it by washing all the rare metals away.
    You may want to consider that when claiming under warranty.

    Can you mimic and show Vx that the car is running on 5 cylinders? this may be sufficient evidence for them to diagnose and Fix.

    They shouldn't rely on the black box to tell them what the problem is

    Very true they rely on computers to tell them what to do rather than having the skill to diagnose a problem and fix it.
