X6 E71 / E72 (2008 - 2014)
The BMW X6 luxury crossover went on sale in April 2008 as a 2009 model year. BMW referes to the X6 as a Sports Activity Coupe (SAC) as it combines the attributes of an SUV (high ground clearance, xDrive and all-weather ability) with the stance, styling and roof line shape of a coupe. The E71 X6 was built off the E70 X5 (2007 - 2013) platform at BMW's Spartanburg, SC plant. Total worldwide sales were just over 235,000, sold mostly to the BRIC countries. US total sales was 34,082 vehicles.

2011 BMW X6 acceleration while braking - idol and rev issue

I have an 2011 X6 and I am a healthy 39 year old male and I am a licensed single engine pilot with over a 1000 hours. I use only my right leg to drive alternating like we all were trained to do. I say all this to prevent or avoid assumptions of driver error. When coming to a stop with my foot on the brake right at the very end when the car just comes to a stop my 2011 X6 will all of a sudden jerk forward trying to accelerate. The problem is intermittent but every time it happens my heart skips a beat. The motor revs and then idols and then revs and idols. Once the car is completely stopped and the auto-brake is set, the rev comes and I have to mash on the brake to prevent the car from hitting the car in front of me. After reading other posts of similar problems I now can at least convince the BMW dealer that there is indeed an issue. My wife has had the same experience with the car and will not drive it anymore. We have owned the Lexus LS 460, Porsche cayenne, Audi Q7 and the X5; never had this problem. I hope BMW decides to take this seriously before someone hits a pedestrian in a cross walk which almost happened with me.

What has being a licensed pilot got to do with the car problem?

I never had the problem with my 2011 X. However, I did have this with my 335 coupe and 328 sedan. Take it to the dealership and tell them it surges...there are cars that have this problem.

Just got the car back from the BMW dealership and they once again said there is no problem. I was informed that it might be a programming issue by their mechanics but they didn't disclose to me if that was the issue not did they look into the programming. They just told me they couldn't duplicate the problem. Hopefully the problem gets resolved soon.

Yes...we were told that too. Just keep on it and document when it happens. I forgot to mention that the 2010 328 we had surged when you put it in reverse. That was a fun one.....
