Had an X6 for the day "Hated It"

So today I had an Apt to get my Takata airbag replaced. For a loaner I had a 2016 X6. I really did not like it. I’m 6’ 3” and the step up and down was too much. Seat was not as comfortable, even with all the adjustment controls and my elbow keep hitting the center consult armrest. Visibility was crap and rear wind was really small and a weird angle. None of the controls were very intuitive, cruise control sucked and when you drove over the speed limit the steering wheel would vibrate (speed was auto updated by GPS). What I like was rear seat room was way better. It was too big for me as I like zipping around in my X1.

It’s true there is no place like home.

I had mine done in July! Certainly doable if you can persuade your dealer...

I never understood the X6 either. But the X5... I could see that replacing the X1 if I needed the space

Blasphemy, but the 2 series awd minivan is actually what I really want!!

Yup, if you make the tradeoff for size, at least you should get some storage space and practicality out of it!
