Advice for buyers
What should I look for in a used BMW X6 estate?
The X6 is an extremely versatile car and can cover big distances with ease, making it ideal for families who do lots of travelling. As such it’s important to go over the interior carefully to look for wear and damage. Being such a wide car it’s also susceptible to scuffs and scratches on the body panels and wheels, so check these. Include the roof in your inspection, just in case it has been used to carry bicycles or a roof box.
What are the most common problems with a used BMW X6 estate?
With the second-generation X6 still relatively new there’s little to report in terms of issues. The engines and gearbox are largely carried over from the previous X6, where they proved impressively robust, and any electrical gremlins that might appear can often be resolved with a software update carried out by a BMW dealer.
Is a used BMW X6 estate reliable?
The BMW X6 finished mid-table in the What Car? 2017 Reliability Survey. BMW as a brand fared similarly, with a performance that put it 17th out of the 32 manufacturers included. That means it’s behind Audi, but ahead of Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar, Volvo and Land Rover.
