X6 ActiveHybrid

What are your thoughts on the Hybrid X6? I have found a certified model for sale and I love everything about the vehicle after researching it, however on a BMW the simpler the vehicle is the better off it will be in the long run and this thing is far from simple. With the certification can it be trusted? I want to add maintenance to it, but I'm guessing the maintenance extension costs will be a bit more than what a normal X6 would be? I have done a search and read about what different people had said, but they were fairly old posts. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Dear BMW lover, walk away from that car as fast as you can. I had one fully loaded, it stayed in the shop for months. I finally, with help forced BMW to replace that car with a X6 5.0 with all of the fully loaded toys. You do not understand they do not warranty the battery and the computer soft ware has lots of problems. I may be mistaken but do not think you can even order x6 hybrid anymore! IT really left a bad impression on me! Sorry to be so negative on this car.

No wonder, a BMW broker here has both X6 Hybrid and X6 5.0i similarly options and mileage, the latter has $5k more asking price. I believe the hybrid has same engine as 5.0i and supposedly better 0-60 and more mpg but lower cost used, ehm....

I would take the x 5.0 and get the additional warranty and service contract! If you drive as much I as do 15,000 yr, you will easily use the cost on the additional service and warranty. Make sure it is the BMW warranty! Good luck! They should be able to give the service records on those cars. I think BMW charge 175.00 for inspection etc.

California Emissions Warranty coverage

I've gained lots of knowledge through the forums so I thought I would give back a little . I've recently bought a used BMW X6 ActiveHybrid and its a pretty sweet ride! As with most people in this forum, I had concerns about whether I would keep the car when the 4/50k warranty expired or get additional extended warranty. My car was originally registered in California (I live in WA) so I ended up contacting BMWNA to see if they would honor California Emissions Warranty. Below is what I got back from BMWNA.

"We thank you for your patience as we researched your inquiry.

The California emissions warranty applies to all vehicles that were sold in California, regardless of where the vehicle has been relocated."

It covers hybrid parts including HV battery, head cover gasket, HPFP, turbo charger, VANOS, ECU etc, 7/70k; pretty much most of the expensive parts.

I believe thats' typical BMW original waranty, 7/70k on big items. For you it's good to have 7-yr waranty on battery those Li-Ion cells are rather temperamental.
