I thought it said in the manual our cars aren't meant for towing anything.
it isnt recommended, but there is a limit to how much they can handle
Yep,My jetta was the same way but the tongue weight of the trailer and my bike is like 100 pounds.The most Ive ever had it on my jetta (smaller shocks and motor) was about 500 pounds on a 250 pound trailer.No issuesIm just trying to find one that will be relatively hidden ya know?
theres a local shop by me (TMF motorsports) that makes a custom hidden hitch for the lancer/evo. i think they ship nationwide, http://tmfmotorsports.com/tmf_products
Thanks for posting the link. I was looking for something like that to tow the JetSki this summer.
You hate the DE's and SE's don't you? lol. You are always the one bashing on them.
its more of how the transmission will handle it. adding all that weight will put stress on it whether it be manual or cvt
This is true . However I always heard manuals do a better at handling the heat that comes with towing . CVT's would probably get way to hot. Especially models without the cooler.
Anything that is not a Manual or a GTS is a piece of s**t. My Manual GTS gets great gains from simple bolt ons, looks better, is faster, better gas mileage, can tow more and its just a better car than your CVT or base model Lancers.
let me rephrase that.There we are, cherio.
I'm not towing anymore weight then my car would have if all seats were filled with people hitch is 20 lbs trailer is 230 bike is 200 riding gear is another 20 altogether 470lbs or three people in my car.I'm not sure why people dog the base models I think its a great vehicle and gets the job doneif you want to have a theoretical debate on how great the GTS is at towing versus a dodge cummins I'm sure theses would be a different tone from some guys on here.however the fact of the matter is it just doesn't matter.the GTS has more power and better and suspension. but I could not afford one new nor did the delaership have one worth buying at the price. So I have the DE and I will tow with it and will be happy because no one in their right mind would engine brake with the cvt or beat the hell out of it with the extra weight...sorry for the tirade but I think its rediculous how a thread looking for hidden hitches on my car turns into a p&%sing match dogging the base models.
