its been talked about on the forum before but I dont think it would have to much of a problem I wouldnt go much more though.
I keep hearing about peoples brakes not working well... do y'all have problems with that? My brakes are extremely good. Better than at least 95% of cars I've driven, and I work in a shop... I drive a lot of cars.Nissan Canada will not sell a hitch for a versa. The mouting of a hitch lowers the rear crash impact rating of the vehicle to a sub-standard level. Not to mention, another 600lbs on the back would make stopping with stock brakes a whole lot of fun.
lol, neither do I. I used to have a Ford Windstar minivan, and my gokart would fit in it, however now i have the versa, and my go cart just sits around collecting rust... :8:we want to get a hitch...haven't done it yet because we don't have anything to tow yet

Not to say you're wrong, because im sure you're not... I'm 100% on board with the crash thing, however.This.
To add to that, the Versa doesn't have weight or power to recover from a situation where the trailer might start to wobble. The trailer/load may be light, but even a 500-600 lb trailer can "wag the dog" so to speak.
Plus, as Jbeau said, it lowers the crash impact rating. Even without a trailer on, if you get rear ended, the impact won't be where its supposed to be, and the car won't protect you like it should.
x2.The car could likely handle it. But the risk is so large. Especially on a highway.
Most places that rent trucks dont have hitches on em. That way they dont have someone who has no idea how to tow a trailer doing so
That's what I was thinking............... The CVT will not take a hitch. Unless you haul an ext rack or bike rack no towing.
I wouldn't tow with the roof rack either :smilielol5:However with my exhaust it wouldn't fit, so it's why I went with roof racks. I wouldn't necessarily tow with it, but just wanted it to add a bike to it.
Haha I meant the hitch, that I wouldn't use the hitch on the Versa to tow. I would have preferred the hitch for loading the bike, but I was not removing the exhaust.I wouldn't tow with the roof rack either :smilielol5:
Actually it would be quite a bit different. The people would be IN the car, where it is designed to carry the weight of the occupants.Its be no worse then adding 1-2 adults to the car. Handeling characteristics would change.
