Re:


Nissan don't recommend them on Pathfinders either. At the end of the day your dealer knows as much about towing as he does about space travel. Heck, most Toyota dealers tell my customers that HiLux is 3000kg tow capacity (Actually only 2250kg).

On pathfinders you need a Hayman Reese tow bar, otherwise you destroy your car... Not a fault of the car, a fault of a poor quality bar. Maybe the same thing, it'll have a sticker if this is the case to say don't use one on the bar, I'll check mine tonight.

Edit:
Okie dokie, so the sticker on my Exy is the same as the ones that come with the genuine Pathfinder sticker. States "Nissan does not recommend the fitting of load levelling or weight distribution devices when used with a genuine towbar"... Solution, buy a hayman reese bar. This is what we had to do with our work Pathfinders for towing.

To be honest however, I doubt a correctly setup hitch could cause a problem. An incorrectly setup hitch could easily cause a problem however, as most of them are designed to remove 272kg of ball weight. Hitches should never be set to remove more ball weight than your car can actually handle in the first place.

Just my 2 cents having seen very many written off vehicles and vans from incorrect loading (low ball weight vs overall loaded weight) or high ball weights and the lack of a lack of a hitch.
