Insurance could well be void after an accident - worse, the illegal combination could cause the accident if the vehicle is unable to handle it. It would lock-up Just trying to assist Homer and Marge with the opinion they asked for in their thread??? Edited May 30, 2012 by rodders68 Hi Danny, I agree with you about the kerb weight as you can see from my post above but where did you get the info about noseweight? Wee tad underpowered at 112bhp for towing a big twin axle and struggled a bit up the big hills in France but we were 2 adults and 3 teenagers with 3 bikes and all the Rubbish teenage girls bring with them. I would be delighted if it is 100Kg. From my internet search I'm concerned to see that this may be a problem caused by the way the towbar is attached. Some versions the petrol 2. Dazred, maybe you could re read my post please.
I drive it sometimes in city traffic and find it a pleasure to drive. The noseweight in my handbook states 75Kg. Apart from that couldnt fault them at all and would have had another. The braked 2004 Nissan X-Trail towing capacity is between 750 kg 0. Getting the same mileage as I did with a 2.
I repeat, we've had no problem towing our weight probably loaded as 1000kg but some who have posted in this thread are towing well over that. Generally this is based on the total train weight car + caravan which can be started on a 12% gradient. As it was still under manuf warranty and only 8 months old I didnt consider them to be doing me a favour. Front wheel drive has the advantage of pulling through the corner, the towed vehicle will therefore, by simple physics, follow through the corner better. I had a 03 plate 2.
For those models of Nissan X Trail where towing is allowed, we have detailed the Nissan X Trail towing capacity for a braked trailer this is when the trailer being towed has its own breaking system. The buyer has plenty of options, in fact, there are ten models to choose from, four diesels and six petrol derivatives. The turbo was replaced under warranty, which is not uncommon. I'm wondering what others would think. I am certainly aware of the difference between a 4. I'm happy and drive accordingly.
I'm enjoying the ride hope you do too I find the X trail a good towing vehicle. I will update when we find out more. The vortices encountered can cause trailers to wander if not loaded correctly and matched to the towing vehicle. Your vehicle is longer and heavier and all your load is anchored to your vehicle at one small point. It certainly has no trouble pulling the Sancerre, and sixth gear can be frequently used when traffic permits.
At high speeds and in crosswinds, the Nissan was more likely to need steering corrections than the class-winning , for example. In particular, could the 1. Not surprisingly, the wagon has gone from strength to strength since those early days. Here is a full list of the Unbraked and Braked Towing Capacity for the Nissan X Trail. Inside, the X-Trail is a practical choice, with plenty of room and the option of third row of seats for an extra £800.
However on weighing the car as ex factory plus full tank and fitted tow bar it weighed 1660Kg. The tare of the van is 1170 and overall length is 6110mm. It's quieter than the Vitara so I can't use engine noise to judge my speed. Gets through front tyres a bit too quickly for my liking, the Satnav was utter garbage, and on both models had a problem with the lacquer on the alloys peeling. Braked is when the trailer being towed has its own braking system.
I had a 03 plate 2. Used the same technique in Exmouth to reverse the van up out of the storm drain up onto the elevated site. It did it and reasonably well all things considered. Reading the Nissan forum they say the motor in these is equivalent to the V8 of the 1970s,we love our xtrail and yes it will pull your caravan. The official towing capacity of a Nissan X-Trail can be found in the V5 log book.
I still have my Terrano 2001 model today. Accidents involving trailers are much worse with greater consequences than without a trailer. Happy and safe travels to all, Huh? Never had transmission lock up. Hi I am sure it came from my hand book! Hope you enjoy yours Danny Hi Danny, I agree with you about the kerb weight as you can see from my post above but where did you get the info about noseweight? Stability-wise, the Nissan X-Trail is good rather than great. If you are looking for the towing capacity for a Nissan X Trail car then we're here to help. In regular driving, that soft suspension makes for a comfortable ride although it allows a lot of body roll if you corner enthusiastically.
