The problem with having a trailer hitches assembly installed is that in a rear end impact, the bumper is designed to absorb the impact. If you have the hitch assembly, regardless of whether or not you have the ball on or if its just the receiver, the impact is going through the hitch into the structure of the vehicle where it is not designed to take impact.

Also, as was mentioned by the nissan tech that is on this board, the brakes on the versa can barely stop the car itself. Now you are loading down the back, which will make it considerably worse for braking as well, and adding that extra weight.

For a car as light as a versa, 1000lbs is alot to tow. If you get a gust of cross wind you are toast. If the trailer starts to wobble, you won't have the power to pull out of it.
I apologize for the disturbance and for reviving this thread up just happened that I had a hitch put on my versa and the dealer told me to just go to the local trailer shop and it would be no problem.The big thing is that nothing has worked and it was not a good set up and then the wiring issues start.
