fits just fine i have it on my 14 they didnt "tow rate" the diesel
does not fit diesel cruzefits on my eco mt6 as well, just fine. I know it's not a diesel, but that hitch should fit. They didn't rate my eco mt6 for towing either, but it sure does it just fine.
The curt hitch is good quality and easy to install.
ppl are hauling more than thatHow much have you guys towed behind your diesel I'm wondering if can tow a 500lb welder/generator behind it on an aluminium trailer?
I have a 2012 Australian diesel and the tow rating in my owners manual reads,How much have you guys towed behind your diesel I'm wondering if can tow a 500lb welder/generator behind it on an aluminium trailer?
Did you need to buy something special to get the lights hooked up or do you not use any?I hauled a yard of topsoil across town the other day. ~2,000lbs and it towed, stopped, and handled just fine. I could tell I was "heavy" but the car didn't sag much even with decent tongue weight. It was a single trip under 10 miles and not on the highway. I wouldn't make it a habit but the car really tows fine. Towing the trailer empty 50 miles at 60mph empty a little while back I avg'ed 39MPG.... That is pretty awesome. If you have a trailer with a fold up ramp, fold it into the trailer so it's not sticking up in the air if you can. I find it makes **** near 10MPG difference. I'm not joking I've tried both ways multiple times. The drag coefficient must be that significant with it in the air.
Yes. You need an adapter for the 4 wire trailer lights. Most trailers that the car will pull will have the 4 wire-flat plug. The car uses a 5 wire tail light system.Did you need to buy something special to get the lights hooked up or do you not use any?
It is kind of plug-and-play. One connector at each tail light, a ground and a power wire up to the fuse box. There isn't an easy way to route the plug out of the trunk. If it is only used once in a while, you can just run it out of the trunk and close the lid on the cable. I cut the plug off and routed it through a grommet and soldered it back together.How hard was it to install?
