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.

X6 problems

My 2010 X6 in for serviceing. Replacing the turbo cooling fan- after 6,000 miles - while there replacing the side view mirrors. Orginal mirror developed a crack- seem to be ing an isse. Anyone experence this with their cars. The 2010 X6 sideview mirrors have a black plastic edge. Not like the X5! Was told by the dealer these X6 mirrors have been an issue. They are replacing both mirrors with the x5 glass.
