Flashy headache
By MrObjective on


2008 BMW X6 xDrive35i 4dr SUV AWD (3.0L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Sure, it gets attention, but I wish more attention had been given to practical design. It's nearly impossible to see out of the rear window making reverse a dangerous exercise. The rear view camera display states to "never rely solely on camera" when that's exactly what the driver must do. Side vision is also hampered by the steep drop off of the front fenders--the driver can't tell see the outboard edge of the car. The liftgate has two opening heights, but getting past the low one is fiddly at best, making loading anything back there a long reach into a shallow slit opening. Super- expensive tires. People will look at you, alright, but I'd rather the car be more user friendly.

Best Features

Good seats. Handling.

Worst Features

Frankly, get over the Hot Wheels styling. save money and buy the much more usable X5.
