BMW X6

The X6 is a coupelike, sporty SUV that's based on the X5. The smooth 3.0-liter turbo six-cylinder engine and eight-speed automatic make it quick, and our tested X5 got a good 23 mpg overall. The luxurious cabin is whisper-quiet, and the seats are all-day comfortable. Handling is very competent, but the X6's ride is stiffer than the X5's.

No Detailed Data Available

Consumer Reports obtains its reliability data from a questionnaire that is sent to subscribers. In the questionnaire, we ask subscribers to note any problems with their cars that occurred in the past 12 months. They are asked to identify problems that they considered serious (because of cost, failure, safety, or downtime).

A typical model has about 200 to 400 samples for each model year. For some model years, typically those of older or less popular cars, we do not have a large enough sample size to provide results of statistical confidence.

There are several ways in which a savvy car buyer can still research the quality of a car.
