Yes Julie

 emoticon Mine always handles so well even with a full camping load and pulling the boat. I still want to know where I stand especially if I am in the situation of having to make an insurance claim.

Re: The Dangers of Overloading your 4WD


I recall I was asked at around 2am to rescue a friend and his commodore from the outskirts of melbourne one night. This resulted in me dragging a tandem trailer and 2 tonne vehicle back.

I realise the exceeded the 2.1 tonne towing limit, but a gentle foot and a slow run back seemed to go quite well.

I noticed no cracking or stress on the subframe on inspection afterwards, and no appreciable temperature increase during the trip.

I have to say that this vehicle continues to impress me, especially after a Kangaroo attempted to t-bone me a couple of days ago.

I've never had a car I can fix with epoxy before.

Re: The Dangers of Overloading your 4WD


I've just weighed my T31 on a weighbridge with Caravan attached.

note: The Kerb weight and the Tare weight of an X-Trail T31 ST-L is 1550kg (is the total weight of a vehicle with standard equipment, all necessary operating consumables (e.g., motor oil and coolant), a full tank of fuel, while not loaded with either passengers or cargo.)

1940Kg!! with me (92Kg) + front bash plate (say 12Kg) + Tow bar (say 25Kg) and some stuff in drawer (say 5Kg) and caravan ball weight 160Kg at the moment (I'm reducing it).

That makes 1646Kg for the Car only. As its curb weight is 1550Kg, 100kgs is hiding somewhere but probably is in glove box, tool kit, tow ball, rear fridge "boxy and shelf thing" I made. Also the Yokohama AT 215 17's I fitted a heavier than the regular tyres!

SO I only have 150Kgs to go to get to GVM of 2100Kgs.

PS not my car emoticon

Won't be able to carry much luggage in car with the van attached; especially if wife tags along!!!

Might need to remove some unnecessary items!!!

Re:


I pressume the X-ie may load a 700 kg INCL. driver and passengers. I thinks there is 380 kg left to load. But.... when I carry a heavy load, I use the passenger fool-well as well to load. Spread the weight so to speak.
A few months ago I loaded over a ton; not for a long distance and it did well. Spread it all over the floor.
And just like you: pavement... (Ooops...) But after all: it's a Nissan ey?!
