Last February, I reluctantly decided to downsize my beloved, 8-year-old, hybrid SUV --one of the first of its make/model. After unenthusiastically browsing a few cars online, I decided to visit the local BMW dealership, United BMW. The entire store was a flagship, showcasing Europe's most modern designs --inside and out. I ended my search by purchasing the very first car I tried, an X6. The X6 is perfect --the overall size is roomy and comfortable, the styling, quiet ride, superior driving experience, and consistent BMW features (that work!) make it a luxurious and smart value.
And then...7 months later, the X6 was determined "a total loss" due to a serious front-end collision. Thankfully, no one was injured, not even a scratch or bruise on anyone. All of the X6's driver and front passenger airbags deployed, keeping the people I love safe. I AM A BELIEVER --BMW makes a superior car, period. Although unfortunate, the accident reminded me that cars can be replaced, but those you love cannot. I could not have become a stronger supporter of BMW products. I still wish the circumstances in which I learned this, had been different.
Round 2: Obviously, I phoned United BMW (how nice to be able to keep in contact with the SAME gifted associate) and began searching for a replacement. This time, I decided to try the certified pre-owned program and allow the previous buyer to take the depreciation. When I arrived at the dealership and snow had begun to fall (ugh...snow in Atlanta closes businesses and sends everyone home early), they had 4 various X6s, warmed-up, parked side-by-side in front, and ready to be looked over. The second X6, an Xdrive version was even easier to purchase (if that could be possible). I love how BMW consistently places excellence into every single detail, earning my lifelong advocacy of the overall brand. Thank you, BMW engineers, for designing an amazing car that kept my loved ones safe! Your time, attention, and innovative technology saves lives. I am grateful for the minds behind the brand and enjoying my second X6 with added peace of mind —even more!
