BMW X6 owners manuals
- On the diesel engines, there are some issues related to the swirl flap, which is prone to breaking causing metal debris into the engine. This can have serious outcomes, even leading to a new engine needed.
- A rattling sound coming from the doors when driving over speed bumps, or badly surfaced roads caused by weak fitment of the door cards.
- Difficulties with the adjustment of the electric front seats or the steering column caused by the switch assembly failing.
The BMW X6 is a mid-size luxury crossover produced by BMW.
The initial generation (E71) was launched for sale in April 2008 and was sold as a sports activity coupé (SAC). It blends the characteristics of an SUV (high ground visibility, all-wheel drive, large wheels, and tires) with the attitude of a coupé (featuring a sloping roof). Based on the previous-generation of BMW 5 and 6 Series the E71 development began in 2003.
The second-generation X6 (F16) was unveiled in 2014 at the Paris Motor Show.
The X6 40i is equipped by a 335-hp turbocharged 3.0-liter inline-six that pairs with an eight-speed automatic transmission, either rear- or all-wheel drive. Its twin-turbo 4.4-liter V-8 engine is significantly more powerful delivering 523 horsepower and 553 lb-ft of torque reaching zero to 60 mph in just 3.8 seconds. The forthcoming X6 M has up to 617 horsepower and will be even faster.
