I have made both oil changes myself with zero mechanical experience. The last Oil Air filter service I bought original parts online on promotion and had a local "non dealer" garage fit it all for me.

I had one blip with the car last year I placed a bottle of windscreen wash in the trunk and it fell over and leaked 5l of fluid, some fluid found its way into a computer which is located under the trunk matt and the 4x4 system shut down while we were away in the mountains.. not ideal. I took it to a main dealer they plugged it in located the issue and fixed for $800 all in which also included a replacement of a recall part in the X Drive system, unsure what it was off hand but if I had to pay for it it would have been around $2500. :-/ so glad I got it replaced for free.

Do not put alternate brands of tires on this car ever, I wasn't familiar with the X Drive system and apparently neither was the tire garage I took my car to, they put asymmetrical tread on the back and symmetrical tread on the front.. this caused major issues with X Drive and had to be changed immediately.

I drive this car everyday to and from school and long journeys, I'm not from the US and so running costs in terms of fuel is an absolute killer I'll be honest, going from my E90 318 M Sport Diesel which used to give us around 700 miles on a tank to this which we are lucky to see 240 to 300 miles was an absolute shock to the system and we had to create an additional monthly budget to run the car. I am not sure my wife would agree in fact I know she doesn't but the pleasure this car gives me compared with the fuel cost is immeasurable.

The performance of this SUV is mind blowing even by 2018 standards, I still chuckle to myself when I see the shocked look on the Sports Coupe owners face next to me after the street lights have turned green... lol and he is like WTF?! but its an SUV! I recently reveled in delight when I pulled alongside my neighbor who has just invested a lot of money in a 2018 Audi RS4 and I matched him out the gate without actually trying.. even with all of his popping and farting noises coming out of his exhaust which for some reason the RS models all do now..

I had a problem when full beam is on and I turn right Im getting an error about the directional something not working on the right headlamp which I will get checked out. Recently in minus temperatures my pads appear to be frezzing to the discs.. well the wheels wont move when I try to drive I have to coax the car forward and reverse and then they pop and become unstuck.. so that's weird. But next week I am having all new discs and pads fitted which it is overdue for and then I'll know if that was the issue.

This time I am not fitting the original rotor discs and pads I am going with Zimmermann Sport Coat Z drilled discs and EBC Yellow Stuff Pads. I am informed that I will see a great improvement on the original stopping performance which I was a little unimpressed with.

This car has cost me next to nothing in the 2 years I have had it and still even though its 6 years old now turns heads wherever I go and gathers approving nods from fellow petrol heads. I dont know if I have been lucky with mine but I would say go for it you wont regret it.

One last thing I wanted to pick up on reading the comments above, I was speaking with a tech in M Cars in Germany and he said that although dealers will tell you "oh its an M car that why it costs more" or "oh it broke because its a delicate and sensitive m car" he said that this is completely not true now with the V8 generation of M Cars.. he said the techs at dealers are so used to the high revving traditional 6 (10) cylinder m cars which can be those things above that they tarnish all m cars with the same brush when in fact the V8 in the X6M is a low revving and very robustly tuned engine which does not suffer any of the same issues as the "traditional m cars" these techs are used to working with. (points at v10) it is a shame because its almost like you have to educate them to the robustness and dare I say non m'ness of the V8 engine.. its just not what it used to be at all.

Hello

Based on your experience, i was comparing the engine Performance of the BMW X6 M E71 vs BMW X6 50i F15, in numbers it seems that the E71 is much powerful but considering the technology of the F15 it seems close , so which is faster

1-drag race 0-60
2-Top Speed
3-Reliability

If considering buying the E71 X6M with 10,000miles and willing to keep for 100,000miles what are the watch outs

Moreover, as i was shopping around i witnessed some include the bubble Hood and others don't, is this an optional feature ?

One more thing , are there any 2014s or the production ended 2013
Thanks

2018 BMW X6 by Vauxford CC-BY-SA-4.0

BMW introduced its new mid-size luxury crossover SUV, the X6, in 2008, crossing the physical capabilities of an SUV with the sleek style of a coupe. Now in its third generation, you can purchase an X6 with more customizability than almost any other BMW model, as well as more interior space.

Whichever generation of X6 you choose to purchase, you can expect a great SUV. We’re here at CoPilot to make sure you come home with a reliable one!

Quick answer: Avoid BMW X6 year model 2011

The only BMW X6 year model that we recommend you avoid is the 2011. Complaints of an overheating engine and a persistent TPMS light make it a bit less reliable than its peers, and while it still has few issues overall, it’s worth going for one of the safer year models.


THE BEST USED LUXURY CARS ON THE MARKET

Buying a used or CPO luxury car is one of the smartest buys you can make - you can get a lot of car for not much money. You can pick up a three-year-old luxury car for about half of what you’d pay new. Check out this list of the best used luxury cars on the market to find the best deals. 


Which year models of BMW X6 are safe to buy used? 

BMW’s X6 crossover SUV is one of the most reliable vehicles on the market. Remarkably, almost every single year model that’s been released is a completely safe investment that will provide you with a variety of features on the road while you ride in style. CoPilot recommends the following BMW X6 year models.

  • 2008 BMW X6
  • 2009 BMW X6
  • 2010 BMW X6
  • 2012 BMW X6
  • 2013 BMW X6
  • 2014 BMW X6
  • 2015 BMW X6
  • 2016 BMW X6
  • 2017 BMW X6
  • 2018 BMW X6
  • 2019 BMW X6
  • 2020 BMW X6

BMW struck gold with the X6. Almost all of this SUV’s year models have had no complaints whatsoever, which is incredible for any vehicle, let alone one from a manufacturer as popular as BMW. With that being said, you can’t go wrong with any of these year models. The only ones worth clarifying are the 2010 and 2018, each with one complaint. 


IS GAP INSURANCE WORTH IT?

Gap insurance can prevent you from making payments on an already-totalled car, but is gap insurance worth it? We break down what gap insurance is, if it’s worth it, and more - simply and with plenty of examples. 


There has been one report of a broken drive shaft in the 2010 BMW X6 at 55,000 miles. Because this is such a rare issue and has only been reported by a single person, it’s worth noting but probably nothing to worry about.

The 2018’s one complaint is even less worrisome, with a customer having problems with a noisy seat. Overall, we recommend purchasing any of these X6s. 

Which year models of BMW X6 to avoid: 

With such a solid history, the X6 doesn’t have many models that you should avoid. In fact, it only has a single one, and while it isn’t completely unreliable or fraught with terrible defects, you might as well get one of the many great BMW X6 year models. CoPilot recommends avoiding the following X6.

The 2011 BMW X6 has the highest number of complaints of any year model, coming in at a still impressive two complaints. For most cars this wouldn’t even be considered a problem, but the nature of the complaints and the fact that there are a dozen other year models with little to no defects means you should avoid the 2011.

At around 70,000 miles, there’s been a complaint of an overheating engine and a Tire Pressure Monitoring System (TPMS) light remaining on, which indicates that tire pressure might be too low for safe driving. Although these problems haven’t been widely reported, they could pose enough of a risk that we recommend avoiding the 2011 BMW X6.


NOT JUST FOR CAR SHOPPING

The CoPilot app isn’t just for buying a car - our new CoPilot for Owning tool will help you keep track of recalls and gives you advice on which scheduled maintenance tasks are most important.


BMW X6 problem counts by year

These are the most common problems reported by owners on platforms such as carproblems.com, carcomplaints.com, and Car Talk Community. The only major reported issues relate to overheating engines and an annoying TPMS light.

The easiest way to find a reliable BMW X6 in your area

The easiest way to find reliable BMW X6s in your area is certainly by downloading the free CoPIlot car shopping app. We’ll search every dealership in your area to create a personalized list of the best luxury crossover SUVs near you.

CoPilot is built using the same technology that car dealerships use to buy and sell their inventory, making it the smartest and easiest way to buy a used BMW X6.

Try CoPilot Compare, the search engine for nearly-new cars if you’re interested in newer, off-lease cars. We’ll only show you models that are 5 years or newer with low mileage, most with CPO availability, and break down how much you save buying used with the best nearly-new listings in your area.

Not convinced yet? CoPilot doesn’t work with dealerships, meaning there are no ‘promoted’ or ‘sponsored’ listings - just the best cars in your area! Learn more about how CoPilot works on our About Us page.

Common problems with the BMW X6

Some problems will only occur after many years of operation, others are related to technical solutions and forced the manufacturer to issue a recall. In the following overview, you will find the most common problems for the BMW X6, for which BMW has announced a recall through the EU Rapex system. For recalls and faults found in the UK scroll down.

If the problem is corrected in time, it may not affect the overall reliability of your BMW X6. However, the fault can often remain unresolved because the previous owner didn´t know about the recall or ignored the manufacturer’s letter.

The good news is that automakers usually provide unlimited time to correct such defects for free. Check to see if all of the potential problems with your BMW X6 have been resolved in the past. How to do it, we give advice on a special page.

X6m common problems bmw

BMW X6 Common Problems and Solutions

Tailgate Spoiler is Loose

Problem:

The tailgate spoiler wobbles or vibrates excessively when driving. In extreme cases, it may come off entirely.

Models affected:

Solution:

The problem here is caused by an incorrectly bonded rear spoiler. It tends to come loose on the top edge of the tailgate on the right-hand side, where it meets the rear of the roof. You'll need to browse our parts list for a new bumper, which we can deliver straight to you.

Diesel engine problems

Problem:

On the diesel engined BMW X6 there is a part called the swirl flap, which is prone to breaking. If this part breaks, it can allow metal debris into the engine, which can have serious consequences, even leading to a new engine being needed. The best way to check for this problem is checking around the intake manifold for signs of oil leaks.

Models affected:

Solution:

At the least, you will need to replace the swirl flap, but have the engine checked by a specialist, so as to check for any engine damage. If you need a new engine, we can help you to find a replacement one, at a very low price.

Electric handbrake problems

Problem:

Are you having any difficulty releasing the handbrake on your X6? If so, this is caused by the handbrake actuator failing, which is a result of a software failure.

Models affected:

Solution:

You will need to have a software update, in order to fix the problem.

Rattling from doors

Problem:

Can you hear a rattling noise coming from the doors when driving? If so, this is caused by poor fitment of the door cards (this is the trim that fills the inside of the door panel). This sounds like a buzzing sound, which will be most noticeable when driving over speed bumps, or poorly surfaced roads.

Models affected:

Solution:

The door cards need to be adjusted slightly, to make sure they are fitted correctly. This should stop the rattling noise.

Electric seats/steering column problems

Problem:

Are you having any problems with the adjustment of the electric front seats, or the steering column? If so, both these systems are run by the same switch assembly, which is known for having problems. If there is any hesitancy in adjusting any of these, then the switch assembly is faulty.

Models affected:

Solution:

You will need to fit a replacement switch assembly, in order to fix the problem. If this is covered under warranty, BMW will fix it for free, otherwise you are responsible for the repair costs.

Broken Isofix Mounting Point

Problem:

Fitting a child seat onto the Isofix mounting has become impossible, and the child seats move more than they should.

Models affected:

Solution:

This should only affect your X6 if it was built between March 2014 and April 2019. If you want to use a child seat safely, then you're going to need to order a new set of mounting points from BreakerYard.

Overheating Engine

Problem:

The engine is overheating, the check engine light is on, and there may be leaks coming from the exhaust pipe.

Models affected:

Solution:

If your X6 was built between March 2014 and May 2017, then there's a good chance that you have a faulty EGR cooler installed. We have replacements in stock that you can order, and installation is relatively straightforward.

Loss of Brake Power

Problem:

The brakes take too long to slow down the car to a complete stop.

Models affected:

Solution:

If your X6 was built between February and October 2020, then it's likely that your integrated brake system hydraulic unit is faulty. You'll need to browse our parts page for a new unit and install the replacement.

Engine Won't Turn

Problem:

When you turn the ignition key, the engine tries to start but won't turn over.

Models affected:

Solution:

It's very likely that the battery cables on your 48V starter generator were insufficiently secured in the production stage. This should only affect those X6s built between July 2020 and November 2020. If you're lucky, you'll be able to adjust the screw connection on the starter generator. If it has become burnt out because of the error, then you'll need to order a new starter generator from our parts list.

With a woman's. And its not surprising that everyone looks alike from behind, and women and men have very similar assholes. He opened the door for me - an exit, making it an entrance, and besides, he lowered the fry into me before. Leaving. He scolded his wife for not waking her up, and she says to me: it was - cute.

A warm feeling passed through my body, but I was so tired that I could concentrate on it. It was very nice though. My thoughts flowed slowly, like the honey haze of the spring city outside the window.
